    • A lightning discharge producing a beam of relativistic electrons into space 

      Briggs, MS; Cohen, MB; Connaughton, V; Cummer, SA; Fishman, GJ; Inan, US; Said, RK (Geophysical Research Letters, 2010-09-01)
      Strong electric fields associated with lightning generate brief (∼1 ms) but intense Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes (TGFs), detected by spacecrafts. A few events are thought to be the signature of a relativistic electron beam ...
    • A survey of ELF and VLF research on lightning-ionosphere interactions and causative discharges 

      Cummer, SA; Inan, US; Marshall, RA (Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, 2010-01-01)
      Extremely low frequency (ELF) and very low frequency (VLF) observations have formed the cornerstone of measurement and interpretation of effects of lightning discharges on the overlying upper atmospheric regions, as well ...
