PhD candidate Katie Herlingshaw has studied high velocity flow channels in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. In her thesis, a global network of radars is used together with optical measurements to investigate the properties of fast flow channels in Earth’s polar cap regions. Katie will defend her PhD thesis entitled ‘Characterising Mesoscale Fast Flow Channels in the Polar Cap Ionosphere’ on 22 January 2021 at 13:00.
