New PhD thesis on Lunar meteoric impact related electromagnetic pulses

Congratulations to Dr. Saiveena Kesaraju on finishing her PhD!
Dr. Saiveena Kesaraju from Penn State University has recently defended her thesis: "GROUND-BASED OBSERVATIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR METEOROID LUNAR IMPACT GENERATED ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSES AND LUNAR SUB-SURFACE STRUCTURE DETECTION". The thesis utilized the Arecibo Observatory and the MIT Haystack Observatory radars to detect radio emissions originating from meteoric impacts on the Moon. The thesis also utilized the Jicamarca Radio Observatory for performing a synthetic aperture radar map of the Moon.
