[M-IS20] Atmospheric Electricity: Lightning discharges and related physical phenomena
convener:Yasuhide Hobara(Graduate School of Information and Engineering Department of Communication Engineering and Informatics, The University of Electro-Communications)
This year's Atmospheric Electrical Session will focus on lightning discharge phenomena and various physical phenomena related to lightning discharges, which are one of the core fields of atmospheric electricity. This session will consist of invited presentations introducing above-mentioned fields by leading experts, and contributed presentations on the latest observational and theoretical research results in these fields. For example, we welcome lightning physics, lightning observation technology, electrical effects of thunderstorms, and lightning related phenomena such as the mesospheric transient luminous events (TLEs), and lightning-related high-energy phenomena that have been actively studied in recent years. We certainly welcome papers regarding all topics on atmospheric electricity including global electric circuit, ion and fair weather electricity, lightning protection, terrestrial electromagnetic noise environment including wave propagation in the magnetosphere and ionosphere.
