Description

The Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (e-POP) is an 8-instrument scientific payload on the Canadian CASSIOPE small satellite, comprised of plasma, magnetic field, radio, and optical instruments designed for in-situ observations in the topside polar ionosphere at the highest-possible resolution. Its science objectives are to quantify the micro-scale characteristics of plasma outflow in the polar ionosphere and probe related micro- and meso-scale plasma processes at unprecedented resolution, and explore the occurrence morphology of neutral escape in the upper atmosphere. The e-POP mission comprises three important components for the investigation of atmospheric and plasma flows and related auroral and wave particle interaction processes in the topside polar ionosphere: a satellite, a ground-based and a theoretical component. We present an overview of the important, new observations and related results from these three interconnected mission components since the successful launch of CASSIOPE in September 2013.
