Automated analysis and statistics of lightning leader speed, local flash rates and electric charge structure in thunderstorms Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Montanya, Joan; López Trujillo, Jesús Alberto (2018)
Open AccessWe introduce new methods for the analysis of complex three-dimensional lightning data produced by Lightning Mapping Arrays and illustrate them by cases of a mid-latitude severe weather producing thunderstorm and a tropical ...
