Simultaneous measurements of electron density and temperature in the northern auroral zone

Abstract

Measurements of electron density using an R.F. capacitance probe, and of electron temperature using a new type of double Langmuir probe, are reported. Data were obtained over an altitude range from about 65 to 240 km, during a moderately strong zenithal aurora. The probes were launched from Andøya, Norway, using a Dragon rocket.
