AbstractA sounding rocket experiment undertaken by the Chinese Meridian Project from a low latitude station on Hainan Island (19.5 degrees N, 109.1 degrees E), China, measured the DC electric field during 05: 45-05: 52 LT on April 5, 2013. The data observed using a set of electric field double probes, as part of the rocket's scientific payload, revealed the special profile of how the vectors of the DC electric field vary with altitude between 130 and 190 km. During the experiment, the vertical electric field was downward, and the maximum vertical electric field was nearly 5.1 mV/m near the altitude of 176 km. The zonal electric field was eastward and slightly less than 0.6 mV/m. The plasma drift velocity was estimated from the ExB motion, and the zonal drift velocity was eastward and of the order of 100 m/s. The zonal wind velocity was also estimated using the drift velocity near the maximum density height in the F1-region, and it was found to be nearly 120 m/s. This work constituted the first in situ measurement of the DC electric field conducted within the F1-region (between 130 and 190 km) in the East Asian Sector.
