ScopeThis session will cover all aspects of coupling between lightning, sprites, jets, elves and the atmosphere/ionosphere/magnetosphere system. This includes observations of transient luminous events, associated radio and electromagnetic effects (ULF-VHF), energetic radiation (X ray and gamma ray) effects, and theoretical results on these topics. This includes also studies about the impact of these phenomena at a local or global scale.
