Comparison of October 30 and November 20, 2003 Superstorms
IDA4D is used to compare and contrast the formation and evolution of storm enhanced density (SED) for the two superstorms that occurred on October 30 and November 20 2003. The equatorial daytime vertical drifts are similar overall for the two days though significant differences are present. (see Figure 2) The development of the equatorial anamolies for the two days and the subsequent formation of SED are shown in Figures 3 and 4. Figure 1 shows a comparison of the fully formed storm enhanced density (SED) and tongue of ionization (TOI) for the two days.
