Paper Abstract

Latitudinal distributions of auroral emissions 656.3 nm (H(alpha )) and 557.7 nm from Loparskaya are analyzed for (17-23) UT on January 30, 1979 when four substorm intensifications were observed. The electric field and electron precipitation (auroral x rays) were measured simultaneously by the balloon. It is shown that the large variations of the electric field were observed in the equatorward part of the auroral zone where most of the time the hydrogen emission occurred. The absence of the proton precipitation inside the WTS was also found.
