TEPA -2012

The Thunderstorms and Elementary Particle Acceleration (TEPA-2012) conference is the second one devoted to the studies of the extreme atmospheric effects connected with amplification of electric fields in the lower atmosphere. The first TEPA conference was organized in 2010 by Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory of Armenia. TEPA–2012 will be hosted by Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia.
