Video: researchers Chris Scott and Patrick Major explain the main findings of their Annales Geophysicae study

New research at the University of Reading has shown the shock waves produced by bombs dropped by Allied planes on European cities were large enough to affect Earth’s electrified upper atmosphere – the ionosphere – up to 300km above the UK. The results are published in the European Geosciences Union journal Annales Geophysicae.
