    • Analysis of the lightning production of convective cells 

      Figueras i Ventura, Jordi; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Besic, Nikola; Grazioli, Jacopo; Hering, Alessandro; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Romero Durán, David; Sunjerga, A.; Mostajabi, A.; Azadifar, M.; Rubinstein, M.; Montanya, Joan; Germann, Urs; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad (2019-10-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper presents an analysis of the lightning production of convective cells. The cells were detected by the MeteoSwiss Thunderstorms Radar Tracking (TRT) algorithm in the course of a lightning measurement campaign that ...

      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      We present in this paper lightning current measurements, LMA (Lightning Mapping Array) data and fast antenna electric fields associated with upward flashes observed at the Säntis Tower during summer of 2017. The LMA network ...
    • Meteorological aspects of self-initiated upward lightning at the Säntis Tower (Switzerland) 

      Pineda, Nicolau; Figueras i Ventura, Jordi; Romero Durán, David; Mostajabi, A.; Azadifar, M.; Sunjerga, A.; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad; Rubinstein, M.; Montanya, Joan; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Altube Vázquez, Patricia; Besic, Nikola; Grazioli, Jacopo; Germann, Urs; Williams, Earle R. (2019-12-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      Interest in exploring the meteorological conditions favoring upward lightning from tall man-made structures has grown in recent years, largely due to the worldwide expansion of wind energy. To this end, instrumented towers ...
    • Polarimetric radar characteristics of lightning initiation and propagating channels 

      Figueras i Ventura, Jordi; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Besic, Nikola; Grazioli, Jacopo; Hering, Alessandro; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Romero Durán, David; Sunjerga, A.; Mostajabi, A.; Azadifar, M.; Rubinstein, M.; Montañá Puig, Juan; Germann, Urs; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad (2019-05-27)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper we present an analysis of a large dataset of lightning and polarimetric weather radar data collected in the course of a lightning measurement campaign that took place in the summer of 2017 in the area surrounding ...
    • REAL - Ensemble radar precipitation estimation for hydrology in a mountainous region 

      Germann, Urs; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel; Zappa, Massimiliano (2009-02-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      An elegant solution to characterise the residual errors in radar precipitation estimates is to generate an ensemble of precipitation fields. The paper proposes a radar ensemble generator designed for usage in the Alps using ...
