    • High voltage electrical discharges in the laboratory 

      Grøndahl, Øystein (The University of Bergen, 2014-12-18)
      A new phenomenon called terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs) was discovered early in the 1990s by the NASA satellite Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory. The short-duration bursts of highly energetic gamma-rays are caused by ...

    • Search for Terrestrial Electron Beams in SAMPEX HILT data 

      Aamodt, Vegard (The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
      The Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer (SAMPEX) was a low polar orbiting satellite operating from 1992 to 2012. The goal of this master project has been to see if Terrestrial Electron Beams (TEBs), ~20 ...

    • Search for unidentified Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes 

      Albrechtsen, Kjetil Haakonseth (The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
      Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes (TGFs) are the most energetic natural phenomena on Earth with possible energies above 40MeV. They consist of large amounts of energetic photons ( 10^17 to 10^19 ) produced in thunderstorms at ...
