Passive Remote Sensing of Artificial Relativistic Electron Beams in the Middle Atmosphere

Abstract

Two methods of passive remote sensing of mildly (E 5 MeV) relativistic electron beams as they propagate through the Earth’s upper and middle atmosphere are presented. Utilization of bremsstrahlung emissions as a diagnostic indicator of beam characteristic energy and particle flux is compared and contrasted with that of the optical emission technique. A new… (More)
