                         photometers in addition to a swept voltage Langmuir Probe, was

                         density profile estimated from the LP and HFC data clearly shows 
                         the presence of two large plasma depletions or bubbles in the 
                         topside F-region centered at 370km and 430km. FFT analysis of the

                         50Hz to 800Hz provided information on the spectral distribution of 
                         small scale electron density irregularities along the rocket 
                         trajectory. Small scale irregularities are observed inside the 
                         plasma bubbles in regions of downward electron density gradient 
                         indicating their possible generation by the well known crossfield 
                         instability mechanism. A brief study of the spectral features of 
                         these irregularities is reported in this paper.",
