First-authored paper is published in Physical Review Research

The 10th first-authored paper “Catalog of gamma-ray glows during four winter seasons in Japan” is published in Physical Review Research of the American Physical Society.

In the GROWTH experiment, mapping observations have been carried out in the Kanazawa and Komatsu areas since 2016, and a total of 70 gamma-ray glows were detected in the four seasons from October 2016 to March 2020. In this paper, we analyzed all 70 cases and performed spectral analysis for bright events. It also summarizes the meteorological conditions during the glows (wind direction and speed, and the temperature observed at the nearest AMeDAS).

I hope that this paper will help spread what kind of events we have observed to the community, and that research will become more active toward resolving the mechanism of gamma-ray glow.
