Characteristics of fragmented aurora-like emissions (FAEs) observed on Svalbard
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-04)
This study analyses the observations of a new type of small-scale aurora-like feature, which is further referred to as fragmented aurora-like emission(s) (FAEs). An all-sky camera captured these FAEs on three separate occasions in 2015 and 2017 at the Kjell Henriksen Observatory near the arctic town of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway. A total of 305 FAE candidates were identified. They seem to appear ...
Keeping track of samples in multidisciplinary fieldwork
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-10)
We here present methods, tools and results for efficiently collecting metadata and tracking samples collected in the field. The samples and metadata were collected during scientific cruises conducted by amongst others marine biologists, oceanographers, geochemists and marine geologists in the Nansen Legacy project. It is here reported on the successful development and implementation of a system ...
Observations of sunlit N2+ aurora at high altitudes during the RENU2 flight
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-09-24)
We present measurements of sunlit aurora during the launch of the Rocket Experiment for Neutral Upwelling 2 (RENU2) on the 13 December 2015, 07:34 UTC. The in situ auroral conditions coincide with those of sunlit aurora and were characterised by the 391.4 and 427.8 nm N<sub>2</sub> <sup>+</sup> emissions. A correlation between several auroral wavelengths, as measured by a meridian-scanning ...
