Auroral Zone Cosmic Noise Absorption Pulsations


Department of Physics, University of Tasmania.

PULSATIONS have been observed in cosmic noise absorption at Macquarie Island (54.5° S., 158.95° E.). The pulsations lasted for 5–20 sec and extended to 0.4 dB in magnitude. They were usually non-sinusoidal and non-periodic and occurred in trains which lasted for 20 min to 2 h near local midnight.
