Planetary waves and vortex structures in the ionosphere

A. G. Khantadze, G. V. Jandieri, A. Ishimaru, and V. G. Jandieri

Abstract. The problem of propagation of large-scale vortices in the ionosphere is investigated. Permanently acting fundamental factors have been discovered making it possible to reveal the mechanisms of generation of large-scale vortices and planetary waves in conductive atmosphere.
