Abstract

The purpose of the presented study is to investigate the zonal drifts of Equatorial Plasma Bubbles (EPB) which applied two different ground-based instruments. Malaysia Real-Time Kinematics GNSS Network (MyRTKnet), consists more than 78 GPS receivers was used to observe EPB along 96° East to 120° East longitudes. Subsequently, zonal drift of EPBs derived from GPS-ROTI is compared with neutral winds velocity from Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI). On 10 April 2013, we founded the maximum drift is about 194.4 m/s at 1430 UT to 1500 UT whereas the minimum drift is 111.1 m/s at 1330 UT to 1400 UT. The results illustrate that temporal variations of EPB zonal drift velocities are consistent with the neutral winds.
