Hunters Trophy Shockwave

Caption: For each source observed near and after the Hunters Trophy event, maps of TEC gradient fluctuation power as a function of east-west and north-south spatial frequency. Here, the peak spectral power over all temporal frequencies is shown as an image in each panel with contours representing the mean power over all temporal frequencies. The range in azimuths expected for waves propagating from Hunters Trophy for altitudes between 100 and 900 km is shown in each panel with black lines.
