Featured article: Imaging high-latitude plasma density irregularities resulting from particle precipitation: spaceborne L-band SAR and EISCAT observations
Particle precipitation represents an important source of irregular plasma density structures in the high-latitude ionosphere. Sato et al. (2018) used Synthetic Aperture Radar to image the small-scale plasma density irregularities under high levels of ionization of up to approximately 300 km over Tromsø, Norway. The irregular electron density is characterized by tens of kilometers of band-like structures aligned in the east–west direction with small patch-like structures. This study presents the first coordinated observations of high-latitude ionosphere features by using SAR satellites and incoherent scatter radar.

Featured article: Paleomagnetic studies on single crystals separated from the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite
Granitic rocks could be good recorders of deep-time geomagnetic field behavior, but paleomagnetic measurements on whole-rock granitic samples are often disturbed by the presence of unstable multi-domain magnetite. Kato et al. (2018) demonstrated that single plagioclase crystals separated from granitic rocks can be reliable recorders of the geomagnetic paleointensity by a series of rock-magnetic measurements and Tsunakawa-Shaw paleointensity experiments on plagioclase crystals of the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite, for which past studies have provided tight constraints on the paleomagnetism and paleointensity. The estimated paleointensity value suggests that the time-averaged field strength at the middle of the Cretaceous normal superchron was several times as large as compared to that of non-superchron periods.
