      Sprites are Transient Luminous Events (TLEs) that can extend vertically from 40 to 90 km and horizontally over several tens of km to form clusters of individual or multiple column or/and carrot-shaped luminous elements. ...
    • Dancing sprites: detailed analysis of two case studies 

      Soula, Serge; Mlynarczyk, Janusz; Fullekrug, Martin; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Georgis, Jean-Francois; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Montañá Puig, Juan; Fabró Tàpia, Ferran (2017-03-27)

      Conference report
      Open Access
      From June 2008 to March 2011 more than 400 elves have been recorded by cameras in southern France and northeastern Spain. A considerable fraction of elves are not as uniform as predicted by theory. We demonstrate examples ...

      During the night of 01-02 September, 2009, several TLEs including 3 halos and 16 distinct sprites were observed above a storm in north-western Mediterranean Sea with a camera at Pic du Midi (42.93° N, 0.14° E, 2877 m). ...
    • Relativistic electron beams above thunderclouds 

      Neubert, Torsten; Pasko, V.P.; Bennet, A. J.; Fullekrug, Martin; Roussel Dupré, Robert; Symbalisty, Eugene M. D.; Colman, J.J.; Chanrion, Olivier; Soula, Serge; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Odzimek, Anna (2011)

      Non-luminous relativistic electron beams above thunderclouds have been detected by the radio signals of low frequency ~ 40–400 kHz which they radiate. The electron beams occur ~ 2–9 ms after positive cloud-to-ground lightning ...
    • Time and space correlation between sprites and their parent lightning flashes for a thunderstorm observed during the HyMeX campaign 

      Soula, Serge; Defer, E.; Fullekrug, Martin; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Montañá Puig, Juan; Bousquet, O.; Mlynarczyk, Janusz; Coquillat, S.; Pinty, J.P.; Rison, William; Krehbiel, P.; Thomas, R.; Pedeboy, S. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-11-27)
