    	abstract = "The electric field instruments onboard the Swarm satellites make high-resolution measurements of the F-region ion drift. This paper presents an initial investigation of preliminary ion drift data made available by the European Space Agency. Based on data taken during polar cap crossings, we identify large offsets in both the along-track and cross-track components of the measured ion drift. These offsets are removed by zeroing drift values at the low-latitude boundary of the high-latitude convection pattern. This correction is shown to significantly improve agreement between the Swarm ion drift measurements and velocity inferred from a radar-based statistical convection model for periods of quasi-stability in the solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field. Agreement is most pronounced in the cross-track direction (R = 0.60); it improves slightly (R = 0.63) if data are limited to periods with IMF B z  < 0. The corrected Swarm data were shown to properly identify the convection reversal boundary for periods of IMF B z  < 0, in full agreement with previous radar and satellite measurements, making Swarm ion drift measurements a valuable input for ionospheric modeling.",

Radar datasets are available from 2007 to 2014 for the Hokkaido and from 2013 to 2014 for the Ekaterinburg radar. In the case of the Hokkaido East radar, we have utilized the elevation angle information to study the MSTIDs propagating at the heights of the E and F ionospheric regions separately. We have analyzed the diurnal and seasonal behavior of the following medium-scale traveling ionospheric disturbance (MSTID) parameters: propagation direction, apparent horizontal velocity and wavelength, period, and relative amplitude. The F region MSTID azimuthal patterns were observed to be quite similar by the two radars. The E region northwestward MSTIDs (from 280{\textdegree} to 320{\textdegree}) were typical of summer daytime. Comparison with the horizontal wind model (HWM07) has showed that the dominant MSTID propagation directions match the anti-wind direction well, at least during sunlight hours. We have also found that the wavelength and period tend to decrease with an increase in solar activity. On the contrary, the relative amplitude increases with an increase in solar activity. Moreover, the relative amplitude tends to increase with increasing auroral electrojet (AE) index, as do the wavelength and velocity.",

    	abstract = "We studied regular diurnal and seasonal behaviors of ground backscatter propagation characteristics corresponding to the Hokkaido East Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) (43.53{\textdegree} N, 143.61{\textdegree} E). Firstly, we simulated key propagation characteristics using a high frequency (HF) calculation technique based on the waveguide approach and International Reference Ionosphere (IRI)-2012 model as background ionosphere. The minimum slant range, skip distance, corresponding elevation angle, and true reflection height were considered in this study. The behaviors of these characteristics were well explained by diurnal and seasonal variations in the critical frequency and maximum height of corresponding ionosphere layer in HF reflection point. We estimated the accuracy of the standard SuperDARN mapping technique and proposed a means for its improvement. Secondly, we constructed an algorithm for mass data processing and extracted diurnal dependencies of the minimum slant range, corresponding elevation angle, and effective reflection height from the Hokkaido East SuperDARN dataset for a period from 2007 to 2014. The algorithm uses the simulated characteristics for distinguishing regular ground backscatter echoes propagating in the E and F2 HF channels. Observed monthly mean and simulated values of the characteristics were compared, and the result showed that the accuracy of IRI-2012 significantly depends on solar activity level and orientation of HF propagation path. In general, the difference between observed and simulated values decreased with increases in solar activity and azimuth. We also analyzed the occurrence of echoes originating behind the radar and found that they most frequently appear in winter and equinoxes before sunrise in beam {\#}0 and after sunset in beam {\#}15. The probability of their observation for a specific local time could reach up to 35 {\%}.",
