Čerenkov radiation within the Earth's upper atmosphere

Abstract

A brief review of Čerenkov radiation within the upper atmospheric plasma has been presented. Different attempts in this context are systematically discussed. The results of analysis about the nature and characteristics of VLF hisses in terms of incoherent Čerenkov radiation are given in a concise manner. The occurrence of resonance cone has also been reported.
