Weather, twilight and auroral observing from Spitsbergen in the Polar winter / D.A.R. Simmons, F. Sigernes, K. Henriksen.

Title: Weather, twilight and auroral observing from Spitsbergen in the Polar winter / D.A.R. Simmons, F. Sigernes, K. Henriksen.
Author(s): Simmons, D. A. R.

Henriksen, K.
Date: 1996.
In: Polar Record. (1996.), Vol. 32(182) (1996)
Abstract: Winter months are good for aurora observations. In January there are long periods of clear, dark skies. February brings twilight. Most frequent types of aurora are patchy prenoon, noontime or cusp auroras, discrete postnoon arcs, discrete Polar-cap and substorm auroras. Other types are seen at times of great magnetic disturbance. General comments on weather in these months are given.
