Global models of the VLF transmitter wave power in the inner radiation belt and slot region
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01149

Summary

Abstract:
Signals from manmade VLF transmitters, used for communications with submarines, can leak into space and contribute to the dynamics of energetic electrons in the inner radiation belt and slot region. We use ~5 years of plasma wave data from the Van Allen Probe A satellite to construct new models of the observed wave power from VLF transmitters both as a function of L* and MLT and geographic location. This work is reported in Meredith et al. (2019) and the data provided here enable reconstruction of all of the figures in the paper.
