Multi-parametric detection of Mid-Latitude disturbances induced by geomagnetic storm

Multi-points multi-parametric observations of the disturbances induced at mid-latitude by weak to moderate geomagnetic storms (Cesaroni et al., 2017). L band, HF and Optical data provides a valuable way to characterize the the dynamical features of the storm indiced ionospheric anomalies (LSTIDs, poleward movement of the crest of the EIA).
