abstracts of papers on ball lightning presented at AIS 2010 "Atmosphere, Ionosphere, Safety" Conference in Kaliningrad
These are abstracts of articles which were presented at the AIS-2010 "ATMOSPHERE, IONOSPHERE, SAFETY" Conference in Kaliningrad, Russia. The Conference highlighted in partlicular the study of ball-lightning phenomena, and of unusual plasma formation. We bring here the abstracts of most of the papers concerning ball lightning. Almost all are of a highly technical nature. We are presenting them as is, some in their peculiar scientese English, as any non-Russian speaking participant at the Conference would have received them. We will not add to the difficulties of understanding the lingering suspiscion that we may have introduced errors by trying to make stylistic or grammatical corrections. We hope that these articles will be a source of interest and inspiration - and also a challenge to contradiction to all who are interested in the Electric Universe theories and research, the members of "Intersect" who have recently carried on a debate on the subject, and all other scientists, from various fields and orientations.
The Conference was organized by the Immanuel Kant State University of Russia, the Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics (Russian Academy of Sciences), the Pushkov Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio-Wave Propagation (Russian Academy of Sciences), the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
