A Study of a Large Bipolar Lightning Event Observed at the Säntis Tower
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

An unusual negative lightning flash was recorded at the Säntis Tower on June 15, 2012. The flash did not contain an initial continuous current typical of upward negative lightning, which is the most common type of event...

A Study of a Large Bipolar Lightning Event Observed at the Säntis Tower
2019 Edition, Volume 61, June 1, 2019 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

An unusual negative lightning flash was recorded at the Säntis Tower on June 15, 2012. The flash did not contain an initial continuous current typical of upward negative lightning, which is the most common type of event...

Preliminary comparison of data from the Säntis Tower and the EUCLID lightning location system
2011 Edition, October 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, direct lightning current measurements obtained on the Säntis Tower from June 1st, 2010 to May 31st, 2011 are used to evaluate the ability of the EUCLID lightning detection network to detect this type of lightning...

Some characteristics of positive and bipolar lightning flashes recorded on the Säntis tower in 2010 and 2011
2012 Edition, September 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present an analysis of measured current waveforms associated with positive and bipolar flashes recorded on the Säntis tower, Switzerland, from May 2010 till January 2012. The overall number of recorded flashes in the considered period was...

LF lightning location system (BOLT) in Osaka area and its applications
2014 Edition, October 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A LF lightning location system called BOLT was installed from the year of 2012 to 2013. This paper presents preliminary results of observations during one winter and one summer. During the winter of 2012-2013, a special type of...

Bursts of fast pulses in positive lightning current waveforms recorded on the säntis tower
2013 Edition, October 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present in this paper an analysis of bursts of fast pulses in current waveforms associated with positive lightning flashes of type 1 recorded on the Säntis Tower in Switzerland. Type-1 flashes are characterized by the presence of a...

An update on the charaterictics of positive flashes recorded on the Säntis Tower
2014 Edition, October 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present an update on the characteristics of positive flashes recorded on the Säntis Tower in Switzerland from May 2010 to January 2013, during which period 38 positive flashes were recorded. Out of the 38 recorded flashes, 1 was identified as a...

Upward bipolar lightning flashes observed at the Gaisberg Tower
2010 Edition, September 1, 2010 - University of Cagliari

We analyze current records for 21 natural upward-initiated bipolar lightning flashes observed to the Gaisberg Tower (GBT) in Austria from 2000 to 2009. Thirteen (62%) of 21 bipolar flashes occurred in non-convective season (September- March) and...

Characteristics of lightning at tall structures and adjacent areas based on detection network data
2014 Edition, October 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Characteristics of lightning occurred at four selected tall structures (heights of 316 to 629 m) and in surrounding areas to ground (for four distance ranges within radius R = 20 km) are determined on the basis of data collected by the North American...

Studies of lightning initiation
2017 Edition, August 1, 2017 - URSI

A long-standing question in lightning studies has concerned how lightning is initiated in thunderstorms, given the absence of physical conductors. Remote sensing observations of discharges are starting to provide the answer to this question,...
