Short summary
We have explored the use of COSMIC radio occultation data to provide valuable scientific information on how energetic particles arriving from the Earth’s magnetosphere affect the ionosphere. These precipitating particles significantly alter the Earth’s ionospheric electron density in the E region at altitudes near 120km. This affects the ionospheric conductivity and hence the global electrodynamics and structure of the upper atmosphere during geomagnetic storms caused by the solar wind.
