Scientists use sounding rockets to show that small oscillations in electric fields can be just as important for atmospheric Joule heating as the presence of the electric field itself.
New research shows that Saturn's powerful magnetic field changes the atmospheric chemistry of its largest moon, Titan.
Scientists disagree about the validity of the spatial scintillation index, a tool that aims to forecast earthquakes based on atmospheric disturbances.
Geophysical Research Letters publishes First Results from the MAVEN Mission to Mars, demonstrating a remarkable achievement of NASA's MAVEN team and the broader scientific community.
What business do elves have in the upper atmospheres of gas giants? Plenty, it seems. The enormous ring-shaped phenomena triggered by lightning may occur on Jupiter, Saturn, and exoplanets.
A new analysis of Cassini data reveals a major source of heavy hydrocarbons on Saturn’s moon Titan.
Scientists projected that the upper atmosphere would continue to cool and contract with rising greenhouse gas emissions. Now, these projections have been confirmed for the first time.
Researchers find that a model of the Earth’s plasmasphere developed in the 1960s is outdated and inaccurate.
