Loss through Auroral Microburst Pulsations (LAMP) is intended to accomplish the following:
Measure pulsating aurora, the highest energy aurora, to see if it plays a role in emptying the radiation belts.
Determine the spatial distribution of microbursts with respect to pulsating patches.
Determine if microburst "trains" are related to optical signatures of pulsating aurbra; if so, determine if microbursts cause modulations of auroral luminosity.
Characterize precipitating e-energy distribution of microbursts to determine if pulsating patches are associated with relativistic e-microbursts
