It's affiliated with Ostfold University College. http://www.hessdalen.org/index_e.shtml Recently a new study was published containing interesting findings from their work. http://www.itacomm.net/PH/2013_Monari_et-al-en.pdf The report indicates that a recent discovery of an abandoned sulfer mine in the region may have given insight into the phenomena. The authors propose that sulfuric acid leached into the ground from this mine may have created a 'battery like' effect to store charge. Then, between the ground and the atmosphere, a charge potential may have built up much like lightning between clouds and ground. When pockets of sulfuric acid becomes vaporous and free floating in the atmosphere, they might ignite, forming free floating spherical plasmas. Interestingly, they believe such pockets of sulfuric acid vapor, whether ignited or not, should reflect RADAR. Therefore, it is posible that an ignited plasma ball would be both visible and reflect radar. If correct, in cases where sulfuric acid has leached into the ground, it might provide an explanation for plasma orbs that are commonly seen and reported as certain kinds of UFOs. These could have a natural explanation. That might also explain apparent merging and disappearance of such phenomena as energies supporting plasma discharge are consumed. This does not 'solve' the UFO question. In particular, it does not answer issues surrounding CE2 and CE3 type events. Nor does it answer questions about daylight or night sightings of objects with apparent physical structure. But, it could potentially be used to rule out a range of other observations of a less physical nature, particularly in those areas where it can be confirmed that sulfuric acid has leached into ground water and land close to repeated 'orb' style observations.
