Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of using satellite ultraviolet measurements to deduce the ionospheric electron density profile (EDP). The ionospheric processes that produce the ultraviolet emissions differ from region to region, so it is necessary to consider separate approaches for the various ionospheric subregions. We will discuss approaches suitable for (1) the midlatitude daytime ionosphere, (2) the midlatitude nighttime ionosphere, and (3) the undisturbed auroral E-layer.
