Paper Abstract

During the summer of 1991, the Combined Release and Radiation Effects Satellite (CRRES) was used over Caribbean to perform five chemical release experiments in ionosphere. The purpose of the G11b experiment was to exclude photoionization to examine the CIV hypothesis by Alfven. For this reason the G11b release was made in shadow to exclude photoionization. In this report we present a possible new method to examine the high CIV interactions in small localized regions, where the anomalous fast barium ionization can produce a local leakage of neutral barium from a sphere shell cloud. It is shown that the optical neutral cloud measurements made in G11b experiment manifest a very simple signature to locate the interaction CIV region as the neutral barium cloud passes the solar terminator. It thus appears that all of main CIV activity for barium orbital injection occurs early in the most dense and energetic part of the cloud. It is suggested that future interactive experiment can use this observation (method) to precisely locate the CIV active region in real time and/or for later analysis of the CIV processes effectiveness.
