Sprites in the Earth atmosphere. Numerical and labratory modeling.
Abstract
Sprites are one of the most interesting high-altitude discharges in the Earth’s atmosphere, which are occurring in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere at altitudes from 60 to 90 km with horizontal size about 30 km. We develop axial-symmetry plasma-chemical self-consistent model to describe influence of sprites on the chemical balance of the mesosphere and optical emissions in different diapasons. We create vacuum tank with pressure difference to model sprites in the laboratory.
