Electric probes have been the primary instruments for the in situ investigation of plasma parameters in the Earth's ionosphere. This dissertation is a compendium of three papers, each dealing with a separate spacecraft that carried one or more instruments based on the electric probe technique.The data was generated using the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) model calculated over Logan, Utah (Lat. 41 44a#39; 7aquot;, Lon. -Ill 50a#39; 3aquot;). Figure 1.2 shows the IRI model temperature for electrons, ions, and neutrals. The ionosphere cananbsp;...
