Waves in the Plasmasphere — 2. Details of Whistler Propagation

  • A. D. M. Walker
Part of the Physics and Chemistry in Space Planetology book series (SPACE, volume 24)


In this chapter we consider in more detail the various stages in the generation and propagation of a whistler which are outlined in Chapter 10. We study the nature of radiation from lightning, the propagation of spherics below the ionosphere and the propagation of ducted and unducted whistlers in the magnetosphere.
