Recently, measurements by the Superconducting Submillimeter-Wave Limb Emission Sounder (SMILES) satellite instrument have been presented which indicate an increase of mesospheric HO 2 above sprite producing thunderstorms. These are the first direct observations of chemical sprite effects, and provide an opportunity to test our understanding of the chemical processes in sprites. In the present paper, results of numerical model simulations are presented. A plasma chemistry model in combinationdoi:10.5194/acp-2020-1228-rc1 fatcat:u6awu57fnrcjbdya3r3ffbten4
