Abstract

The Earth’s ionosphere (at altitudes higher than ~ 60 km) is a natural low-temperature, non-equilibrium plasma. The investigation of its structure and physical properties is one of the main purposes of geophysics and atmospheric physics. The analysis of physical-chemical processes in the Earth’s ionosphere is also fundamental to understanding processes occurring in low-temperature laboratory plasmas and in technological devices.
