    We 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 ...
  • Evolution of gigantic jets at high temporal and spatial resolution 

    Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Montanya, Joan; López Trujillo, Jesús Alberto (2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Gigantic Jets (GJ) are lightning discharges between the cloud and the lower ionosphere, which manifest as leaders at low altitude and transition to streamers as they rise in altitude. The evolution has never been imaged ...
