Mid-Latitude Electrodynamics and Plasma Physics: A Tutorial

After an initial decade or two, during which the Arecibo Observatory made enormous progress in ionospheric electrodynamics, something of a lull occurred as interest migrated to the equatorial and auroral zones. But with the advent of all-sky airglow imagers and imaging coherent scatter radars, some of the complexities of mid-latitude phenomena have been clarified. In this tutorial we will review the current state of the art in mid-latitude electrodynamics and plasma physics.
