Research the effects of lightning on the outer ionosphere.
Research the effects of lightning on the outer ionosphere. Lightning discharges and the effects on the Earth's near space environment can be recorded with the VLF receiver. Receive frequency range is 0.1-12 kHz, with 5 kHz typcal of a lightning strike. Measurements are taken by both picosatellites. Comparison of the data permits the extraction of the occurrence and amplitudes of horizontal and vertical lightning.
