Developed at Marshall, LIS detects the distribution and variability of total lightning -- cloud-to-cloud, intracloud, and cloud to ground -- that occurs in the tropical regions of the globe.
The highly conductive nature of aluminium means that lightning strikes measuring up to 200,000A can be quickly conducted on their journey from cloud to ground or cloud to cloud.
The airborne thoroughfare could coax lightning to take a desired path from cloud to ground during a thunderstorm.
Hence, it is very convincing that a typical cloud to ground leader has a part inside the cloud that is oriented towards horizontal, followed by a nearly vertical section beneath the cloud base.
That's how the stroke gets from the cloud to ground.
The build-up is often discharged from cloud to ground (fork lighting) with bolts travelling at 14,000mph and heating the air around it to an astonishing 30,000C, or the equivalent of five times hotter than the surface of the sun.
A splintered pitchfork sparks from cloud to ground.
So there is often a wonderful display of `sheet lightning' which appears tropical in its intensity as the lightning jumps from cloud to cloud rather than crossing the more difficult path from cloud to ground.
5) This discharge can produce temperatures of 50,000 [degrees] F Lightning is perceived as moving from cloud to ground because the leader stroke is very luminous and slower than the return stroke.
Within two days, sensors along the storm track detected more than 59,000 flashes from cloud to ground, reports Richard E.
As the strokes of electrical energy jump from cloud to ground and cloud to cloud, they ionize the air, producing nitrogen oxide (NO) in the process.
