Hemispheric asymmetries

Seasonal variations in the ionospheric currents are different in the north and the south.
Seasonal variations in the ionospheric currents are different in the north and the south. Winter currents in the south are not the same as the winter currents in the north

The model allows for comparisons between hemispheres at unprecedented accuracy. We have used this capability to show that the seasonal variations in the ionospheric currents are different in the two hemispheres. This result was presented at the Swarm science meeting in Banff, Canada, in March 2017.

The presentation was highlighted in  an ESA press release (Swarm detects asymmetries)
