1er Symposium canadien en analyse numérique et calcul scientifique
Numerical simulations of ionospheric gravity waves
Campbell, Lucy and Victor Nijimbere
Carleton University

We examine the evolution of internal gravity waves in the ionosphere, the region in the upper atmosphere where there is a high concentration of ions and electrons. The waves are influenced by electromagnetic forces that fluctuate randomly in time and the problem is thus represented in terms of stochastic partial differential equations. We discuss the implementation of a numerical method based on Weiner chaos expansions and present the results of the numerical simulations.
