Title: Aspects of late-time striation behavior and satellite communication effects. Final report, 22 December 1976-31 January 1979

Abstract

This report is a study of aspects of plasma wave turbulence relevant to late-time striation behavior and satellite communication effects. These include: 1. Basic theory of particle diffusion due to quasi-neutral plasma modes. 2. Forms for the diffusion coefficients of linear and nonlinear mode properties. 3. Relevance to E x B gradient-drift modes in the absence of other modes. 4. Diffusion due to drift-dissipative turbulence. 5. Characterization of the diffusion coefficient from drift-dissipative modes in computer simulations. 6. Observational aspects of drift-dissipative waves relevant to in-situ measurement and scintillation. 7. Discussion of some selected experimental situations and phenomena such as the BUARO release, STRESS, and Three-Meter Backscatter. 8. Survey of additional density-gradient instabilities possibly relevant to anomalous diffusion under HANE conditions. The study suggests that modes other than the E x B mode can contribute to striation dynamics at high altitudes. Possible experimental tests of the relationship of plasma turbulence and striation evolution are described.
