Plasmas in Planetary Atmospheres

The research carried out in this line is focused on studying plasmas and electrical discharges that occur within planetary atmospheres. Presently our research aims at understanding the nature of Transient Luminous Events (TLEs) as, for instance, Sprites and Halos occurring in the Earth mesosphere, as well as their possible impact on the chemical and electrical properties of the atmosphere of the Earth.
