COMMISSIONE PER I FENOMENI LUMINOSI IN ATMOSFERA

A CHRONOLOGICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY ABOUT SAINT ELMO'S FIRES,IGNES FATUI AND "EARTH LIGHTS"
by Giuseppe STILO - CISU, "Commissione FLA", Turin, Italy
giuseppe.stilo@usa.net


Last revision: March 3, 2003. Number of entries: 800.

Notes:
In the following bibliography, with the aim to semplify the indexing system, are listed works dealing with the so-called "Earth Lights" hypothesis or "terrain-related light phenomena"- as the english researcher Paul Devereux put it alternatively, and also works dealing with the more ambiguous "Ghost Lights". No reference is in general made to works regarding more specifically TST (Tectonic Stress Theory) and EQL (Earthquake Lights).

In the same way, because of their autonomous relevance, bibliographical entries concerning the Hessdalen (Norway) phenomena are listed under a separate file by Renzo Cabassi [Italian Committee for Project Hessdalen]&emdash; CISU, section of Bologna.

The identyfing codes of the sources consists of three parts:

* a general progressive number.
* the first letter of the language in which the source is written (D: German; E: English; F: French; I: Italian; L: Latin; R: Russian; S: Spanish; W: Swedish).
* the year in which the source has been published, following a scheme of this kind: NNN L YYYY.

Ultima revisione: 3 marzo 2003. Numero delle voci: 800.

Nota:
Nella bibliografia che segue, allo scopo di semplificare il sistema di indicizzazione, sono elencate le opere che affrontano l'ipotesi delle cosiddette "Earth Lights" o dei "fenomeni luminosi legati al terreno" - come le definisce il ricercatore inglese Paul Devereux - ed anche quelle che si occupano delle più ambigue "luci fantasma". In generale, non vi sono riferimenti a lavori che riguardino in maniera più specifica la TST (Teoria dello Stress Tettonico) e le EQL (Luci Sismiche).
Allo stesso modo, a causa della loro rilevanza autonoma, gli ingressi bibliografici riguardanti i fenomeni di Hessdalen (Norvegia) sono riportati a parte in una bibliografia redatta da Renzo Cabassi, della sede CISU di Bologna.

I codici d'identificazione delle fonti consistono di tre parti:

* un numero progressivo generale.
* la prima lettera della lingua in cui la fonte è redatta (D: tedesco; E: inglese; F: francese; I: italiano; L: latino; R: russo; S: spagnolo; W: svedese).
* l'anno in cui la fonte e' stata pubblicata. L'insieme secondo uno schema del tipo: NNN (numero progressivo) L (lingua) YYYY (anno).
