Abstract

This project, completed in collaboration with SRI International, will be the first of a four year project to determine the amount of energy that is entering the atmosphere due to auroral phenomena caused by solar wind. MATLAB routines were developed to process data from the FAST satellite for Poynting flux and kinetic energy flux. These routines will be utilized in future years of the project.
