    • Abstract


      The role of added electrons on the drift dissipative instability in a nonuniform collisional plasma is analysed. We observe the presence of a drift wave that depends entirely on the added electrons through the collision frequency coupling and there is an additional damping. The present study is applied to the density irregularities caused by meteor ionization in the ionosphere.
