The work continues along the lines described in detail in the grant application submitted at AFOSR. This bas three main aspects examining and understanding new phenomena, the role of electronic excistation and the more detailed examination of aspects that are broadly understood but deserve a second look. The technical report below describes a particular example of the third aspect. This has to do with the role of the extreme compression that can be achieved during cluster impact. The point of the detailed examination is to establish that prior to the expansion of the cluster there is indeed a compression stage. The work continues along the lines described in detail in the grant application. Several papers have been submittedpublished since the previous report. The work continues along the lines described in detail in the grant application. Several papers have been submitted published since the previous report, A complete list is included below. As written in the earlier report, scientists from Air Force laboratories emphasize that for a variety of aerospace related applications it is necessary to better understand light emission from both natural and human-induced perturbations of the atmosphere.
