AbstractA number of ionosondes have been operated in China to detect ionospheric disturbances for many years. These ionosondes, however, are not very suitable for the short-period (<15 min) disturbances due to their poor time resolutions (>5 min). During recent years, the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with the South Central University for Nationalities has been developing a portable digital ionosonde (PDI) equipped with the capability to detect and characterize small-scale/short-period ionospheric disturbances and to be quickly assembled and set up at temporary field stations for low-latitude campaign coordinated observations. The PDI uses a set of technologies (e.g., code multiplexing and antenna/transmitter matching) that allow it to obtain quality Doppler ionograms at a good time resolution with small transmitting antennas. A preliminary analysis of observations by the PDI at Sanya (18.3 degrees N, 109.6 degrees E) shows the presence of ionospheric disturbances with periods ranging between several and tens of minutes. Interestingly, the disturbances (with different periods) were found to simultaneously occur at different F region altitudes, for example, with periods of similar to 5 and 20 min below and above similar to 180 km, respectively. The absence of shorter-period disturbance at higher altitude is consistent with acoustic gravity waves through the region with intrinsic periods above the Brunt-Vaisala period. The short-period disturbances observed in F region bottomside are not evident in total electron content. The results demonstrate the capability of PDI to detect ionospheric disturbances with temporal scales down to a few minutes in routine ionogram mode. Future prospects of PDI are outlined.
