|Mechanisms involved in the formation of upward lightning are revealed|
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...
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...
