Abstract

The ground based VLF database from Indian Antarctic station Maitri (70°46¢ S, 11° 44¢ E, L ~ 4.6) has been searched for very low frequency (VLF) emissions during January-February of the years 1998 and 1999. The VLF recording system was successfully installed during the XVII Indian Scientific Expedition to Antarctica (ISEA) 1997-98. The spectrograms of analysed data have revealed the common occurrence of various emission events like chorus rising emissions, emission of rising type, falling emission of hook type and multiple emissions. Also the observed emissions (periodic and quasi-periodic) are found to be risers and fallers triggered from the top of hiss band.
