Tweet

- Rayleigh-Taylor instability is known as the fundamental mechanism of equatorial plasma bubbles
- Linear equations for small perturbation are first obtained from the electron/ion continuity equations, momentum equations, and the current continuity equation in the equatorial ionosphere
- The linear equations can be casted as an eigenvalue equation using a normal mode method
- The results agree with the derived sufficient conditions
