• Constraints to do realistic modeling of the electric field ahead of the tip of a lightning leader 

      Skeltved, Alexander Broberg; Østgaard, Nikolai; Mezentsev, Andrey; Lehtinen, Nikolai; Carlson, Brant Edward (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-08)
      Several computer models exist to explain the observation of terrestrial gamma‐ray flashes (TGFs). Some of these models estimate the electric field ahead of lightning leaders and its effects on electron acceleration and ...

      The Atmosphere‐Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) was launched to the International Space Station on 2 April 2018. The ASIM payload consists of two main instruments, the Modular X‐ray and Gamma‐ray Sensor (MXGS) for imaging ...
    • First Map of Coherent Low-Frequency Continuum Radiation in the Sky 

      Füllekrug, Martin; Koh, Kuang; Liu, Zhongjian; Mezentsev, Andrey (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Lightning discharges and radio transmitters emit low‐frequency (∼3–300 kHz) electromagnetic waves with large electric field strengths and stable phases. This phase stability makes it possible to map the source locations ...
    • Gamma Ray Glow Observations at 20-km Altitude 

      Østgaard, Nikolai; Christian, Hugh J.; Grove, J. Eric; Sarria, David; Mezentsev, Andrey; Kochkin, Pavlo; Lehtinen, Nikolai; Quick, Mason; Al-Nussirat, Samer; Wulf, Eric; Genov, Georgi; Ullaland, Kjetil; Marisaldi, Martino; Yang, Shiming; Blakeslee, Richard J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In the spring of 2017 an ER‐2 aircraft campaign was undertaken over continental United States to observe energetic radiation from thunderstorms and lightning. The payload consisted of a suite of instruments designed to ...
