Knowledge of lightning parameters related to
electrical atmospheric discharges are essential to predict the
severity such as over voltages in power lines or other damages.
Today the availability of statistical data related to lightning is
still important in order to infer the severity of particular
situations such as an engineering design. One of the lightning
parameters useful for engineering is the total electric charge
related to the entire flash. This paper presents estimations of
the total charge deposited by lightning as a result of the
analysis of the electric field changes due to lightning.
