Abstract
Statistical studies have been made of the diurnal and latitudinal occurrence and intensity patterns of ELF, VLF, and LF whistler-mode noise emissions observed with the Alouette 2 satellite. The ELF emissions occur characteristically below 1 kHz, are peculiar to the daylight hours, and show a peak in average intensity in the invariant latitude range of 50o-70o. In the VLF range, broadband emissions extending upward from the LHR frequency show a maximum average intensity near local noon.
