Abstract

Abstract The field-aligned expansion of plasma clouds in the ionosphere was studied with different mathematical models and for a wide range of conditions. In all cases, the expanding plasma cloud acted as an electrostatic snowplow, creating an O + hole in the ionosphere coincident with the cloud and O + bumps on the two sides of the cloud that are aligned with the geomagnetic field.
