Surveying pulsating auroras

Eric Grono and Eric Donovan

Data sets

Replication data for: Surveying Pulsating Auroras E. Grono

Short summary
This is the first survey of pulsating auroras which is differentiated by type. Pulsating auroras are found to be almost always an early-morning phenomenon and are almost entirely lacking persistent structuring before midnight. Long-lived patches which are known to move with convection primarily appear after midnight. These patches are a less common form of pulsating aurora and are found to originate from the inner magnetosphere, in agreement with past observations of their source region.
