Study of Quasi Pulsing VLF/ELF Hiss Emissions at a Low Latitude Indian Ground Station


This paper report an unexpected simultaneous observation of band limited quasi-periodic pulsing ELF/VLF hiss emissions. The data shown in this paper indicate that there is a strong possibility that lightning is an important source of different types of VLF/ELF emissions, at least in the embryonic sense, recorded at Jammu. The present observation is in fact the first simultaneous occurrence of VLF/ELF hiss emissions
