Short summary
To check the difference between data observed at different altitudes of the DEMETER satellite, a statistical method is adopted to evaluate whether data difference is caused by normal data fluctuation or by altitude adjustment. Based on the method, in situ electron density data at higher altitudes are found to be greater than those at lower altitudes. We speculate that this phenomenon is caused by stratification above F2 peak region. The proposed method is useful when comparing fluctuated data.
