Abstract:

The Arecibo Observatory was used to detect two circularly polarized bursts at 1415 MHz from the dwarf M star AD Leonis with total durations of 50 s and 25 s. A sequence of quasi-periodic pulsations with a mean periodicity of tauP3.2 or - 0.3 s and a total duration of taud25 s was superposed on the 50 s burst.
