The problem of how lightning is initiated inside thunderclouds is probably one of the biggest mysteries in the atmospheric sciences. Recently established high energy processes in the atmosphere, i.e. Terrestrial Gamma Flashes (TGF) – brief bursts of gamma rays observed by orbiting gamma ray observatories and Thunderstorm Ground Enhancements (TGEs) – sizable...
Series of Lectures Are Continued At the Master Courses of A. Alikhanian National Laboratory (Feb 2, 2016)
Physics is more than a collection of facts and equations - it is an evolving conception of the universe through which we seek to understand ourselves The primary goals of the Master's program started at YErPhI in 2014 are to impart expertise in current research topics on the basis of a deep knowledge of the fundamentals of the experimental physics. Research...
Lightnings and Particle fluxes from the Thunderclouds Thunderstorms and Elementary Particle... (Oct 9, 2015)
Yerevan, Armenia, 5-9 October 2015 The problem of how lightning is initiated inside thunderclouds is probably one of the biggest mysteries in the atmospheric sciences. The relationship between thundercloud electrification, lightning activity, wide-band radio emission and particle fluxes has not been yet unambiguously established. One of the most intriguing...

The Mars One Mission Member visits Aragats for conquering its Summits (Jul 21, 2015)
In the top list of 100 candidates for the flight to Mars as part of the project Mars One proved three residents of Russia. They include 50 men and 50 women from around the world who still have to go the final stage of selection scheduled for 2025 expedition to the Red Planet. Mars One believes that human settlement on Mars will be the most profound and influential...
Severe April snowstorms did not disturb operation of Aragats research station: A super event of... (Apr 20, 2015)
Lightning has been around since the dawn of time, but what triggers it is still an enigma. Now, researchers propose that the answer could lie in high-energy particles that are accelerated in the atmosphere and ionize the air, releasing free electrons and leading to a massive discharge. Thunderclouds become electrically charged from the collisions of microscopic...
