Abstract : An observation of electrostatic noise bands observed with the Javelin 8.46 sounding rocket is presented. It is shown that these noise bands are related to harmonics of the proton gyrofrequency. This observation is believed to be the first confirmation of ion gyrofrequency harmonic effects in the ionosphere. (Author)
