Abstract

We discuss our wave injection experiments at Arecibo, Puerto Rico, investigating the spectral characteristics of HF-enhanced Langmuir waves among other phenomena. The obliquely propagating HF waves were transmitted from a tilted heater while the vertically propagating HF waves were employed in later experiments. Our comparative studies of Langmuir waves produced by the vertically and obliquely transmitted HF heater are aimed at investigating the source mechanisms responsible for the generation of HF-enchanced Langmuir waves. Parametric instabilities and nonlinear scattering processes are examined as the potential mechanisms.
