about

This book presents a collection of reviews prepared for the conference "Atmosphere, Ionosphere, Safety," held in Kaliningrad, Russia, in July 2012. It provides the reader insight into the current developments in the following fields: physics of elementary processes; ionosphere dynamics; ball lightning and aerosol structures; as well as remote detection of the radioactive and highly toxic substances. The diversity of scope presented offers readers an up-to-date overview of trends, questions and their solutions.

Vladimir L. Bychkov is a leading researcher at the Department of Physics at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. He has 35 years of experience in plasma physics studies, namely, the physics of elementary processes, gas discharges, plasma chemistry and ball lightning. He is Head of the Russian Committee on Ball Lightning and Vice-Pres...
