Are plasma bubbles a prerequisite for the formation of broad plasma depletions in the equatorial F region?
Formation of broad plasma depletions (BPDs) at night in the equatorial F region is understood in association with plasma bubbles. However, we report BPDs that do not show a connection with bubbles. The characteristics of BPDs are investigated using the observations of the Communication/Navigation Outage Forecasting System (C/NOFS) satellite on 31 December 2008, 28 July 2010, and 1 February 2011. On those days, BPDs are detected in the longitude regions where C/NOFS did not detect bubbles prior to the detection of ...

Seasonal and longitudinal variation of large-scale topside equatorial plasma depletions
We examine the large-scale properties of three classes of equatorial topside plasma depletions referred to as channels. In order of increasing zonal width and internal large-scale substructuring, we study simple channels, multichannels, and superchannels. We find that peaks in channel activity are centered on 0° (African sector) and 180° (Western Pacific sector). Superchannels are found to strongly dominate in the African sector, whereas simple and multichannels dominate the Pacific sector. Within the African sector, the r ...
