The Ionosphere: Exploring our Electric Atmosphere
Our ionosphere, bombarded by solar UV radiation, is an ever-changing, electrically charged layer of our atmosphere. Recently, scientists have learned that terrestrial weather can affect the ionosphere as well. Dr. Douglas Rowland will talk about this exciting part of our atmosphere, our interface to space, and NASA’s current missions, ICON and GOLD, which are providing a unique view of this fascinating part of our planet.
