Abstract The authors present data taken to test the use of phase and amplitude variations in ground based VLF wave propogation measurements as a means of determining the location of the auroral electrojet. High-energy (> 300 keV) precipitating electrons at the edge of the electrojet can induce phase and amplitude variations in VLF waves propogating through that region of the atmosphere. The authors present measurements made in conjunction with conventional magnetometer measurements as a way to validate this technique. Satellite measurements of field-aligned currents were available for one night of observations.
