    ABSTRACT: Variations in the frequency of occurrence of riometer absorption, minimum frequency of reflection of the ionospheric F layer, minimum height, and height of maximum electron density of the ionospheric F layer near the solar minimum have been studied. Application of the superposed epoch technique has detected the Moon phase effect on these ionospheric parameters. This effect was: three events per day in the occurrence of riometer absorption, 0.056 MHz in the minimum frequency of reflection of the F layer, and 2.6 and 6.7 km, in the change of the minimum height of reflection and height of reflection from the region with maximum electron density of the ionospheric F layer, respectively. The lunar tide action changes the ionospheric conductivity and, thus, influences the current systems of the magnetosphere. Through changes of magnetospheric currents, the Moon phase effect is exhibited in the Ap and Dst indices and is 4.3 and 4.25 nT, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Based on riometer measument results at the meridional chain of stations Maimaga corrected geomagnetic latitude 57 5 r Kystytem 61 4 r Dzhardzhan 62 8 r Tixie 65 2 r and isl Kotelny 69 7 r for 2004 a model of electron energy change in the process of increase of their energy in the magnetosphere has been constructed From the model it follows that to increase the energy from 0 42 keV in the plasma magnetotail layer to 43 keV in the precipitation place a single passage of electron from the magnetotail from 8-25 Re to L-shell approx 5 6 is enough for the average time of sim 10800 s
