A slew of new discoveries about the mysterious gamma ray flashes that come from Earth’s thunderclouds were unveiled by BCSS-leader Nikolai Østgaard during his talk Tuesday Dec 10 at the AGU Fall Meeting 2019 in San Francisco. The new findings are also presented in three new publications in Science and Journal of Geophysical Research:
- Nikolai Østgaard et al.: First ten months of TGF observations by ASIM. Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2019.
- David Sarria et al.: The First Terrestrial Electron Beam Observed by The Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor. Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, 2019.
- Torsten Neubert et al.: A Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flash and Ionospheric Ultraviolet Emissions Powered by Lightning. Science, 2019.
The new results are summarised in this press release by AGU.
