Two Science Journals Discuss Armenia’s Cosmic Ray Division

YEREVAN–Two scientific publications have recently included reports on research conducted by the Cosmic Ray Division of the Artem Alikhanyan National Laboratory (formally the Yerevan Physics Institute) in Armenia. The research addressed in these two articles deals with terrestrial cosmic rays produced in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Observations of High-Energy Particles and Radiation from Thunderstorms,” which appeared in the November 23 issue of the Newsletter of the American Geological Union, was written by Alan Fishman of NASA.

Armenia Detects Space Weather” appeared in Symmetry, the joint quarterly publication of the FERMI and SLAC National Laboratories in the US. This article was authored by Daisy Yuhas.
