Leonid electrophonic bursters.

BEECH M. and FOSCHINI L.

Abstract (from CDS):

We investigate the conditions under which Leonid meteoroids might generate short duration (burster) electrophonic sounds. A ``first order'' theory is employed to estimate the approximate electron number density in the meteoroid ablation column as a function of time. Using the threshold conditions discussed in an earlier communication (Beech & Foschini, 1999A&A...345L..27B) we find that Leonid meteoroids more massive than about 0.1kg can potentially generate short duration electrophonic bursters.
