Short summary
Underground nuclear explosion (UNE) can produce ionospheric disturbances through a lithosphere–atmosphere–ionosphere coupling mechanism, which is very similar with earthquakes. By using the total electron content observations and Swarm ionospheric current data, we have investigated the geomagnetic conjugate ionospheric disturbances. We proposed that the electric field generated during the UNE test can be an important mechanism for ionospheric disturbance.
