Highlights •Jupiter’s 5 µm hotspots are not correlated with the location of radio hotspots at 2 cm. •The layer probed at 2 cm in Jupiter’s atmosphere, 1–2 bars of atmospheric pressure, is...
KEY POINTS Isotopic fingerprint of N2O from permafrost peatlands in subarctic tundra is similar to that found in natural soils from other latitudes; the larger N2O emissions in subarctic...
The current generator design produces near monoenergetic 2.45 MeV neutrons at outputs of 10^8 n/s. Calculations provided show that future conditioning at higher currents and voltages will...
