|Mechanisms involved in the formation of upward lightning are revealed|
Up to January 2012, no upward flash had ever been registered in Brazil. With the help of some video cameras, we recorded during January, March and April, fifteen upward lightning which started from one or more towers located on Peak Jaraguá in the city of São Paulo. This research project aims to characterize upward lightning hitherto observed and studied in Brazil and aims to answer som...

On January 2012, the first upward lightning in Brazil was recorded. Four upward lightning flashes initiated from one of the towers located on Jaragua Peak, in São Paulo city, three of them were recorded at an interval of six minutes. They were recorded with a high-speed camera (4000 fps) and standard camera. This research project aims to increase knowledge about the upward lightning nev...
This research project consists in combining observations obtained through high-speed cameras and atmospheric electric field measurements in order to study two physical phenomena involved in the production of natural cloud-to-ground lightning: M components (pulses that occur during the continuing current and whose peak current value, obtained from triggered lightning experiments, can ran...
Upward lightning flash studies are antique (McEachron, 1939). Interest in this subject has grown recently, because of the rapid expansion of wind power generation. Also, with the increasing number of tall buildings and towers, there will be a corresponding increase in the number of upward lightning flashes from these structures. In Brazil, this study started in January 2012, when ELAT G...
