Bortnik, J.; Thorne, R. M.; Meredith, N. P. ORCID: 2009 Plasmaspheric hiss overview and relation to chorus. Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics, 71, 16. 1636-1646.

A brief overview is given of the history of plasmaspheric hiss research, particularly in the context of the recent work by Bortnik et al. (2008) indicating that chorus could be the likely source of plasmaspheric hiss. Previous suggestions given in the literature for this theory are reviewed and then the mechanism itself is outlined, focusing on the characteristic cyclical trajectories executed by typical ray paths that enter into the plasmasphere. A number of directional propagation studies performed in the past are then discussed as well as other work which bears relevance to the present mechanism.
