Electromagnetic waves linked to particle fallout in Earth’s atmosphere

Hanover NH (SPX) Jan 06, 2015

In a new study that sheds light on space weather’s impact on Earth, Dartmouth researchers and their colleagues show for the first time that plasma waves buffeting the planet’s radiation belts are responsible for scattering charged particles into the atmosphere.

The study is the most detailed analysis so far of the link between these waves and the fallout of electrons from the planet’s radi —> Read More Here
