Manual Lightning: Physics and EffectsPlasma Physics Reports. The interaction between the lightning leader and the space charge accumulated near the top of a ground object in the atmospheric electric field is considered using analytical and numerical models developed earlier to describe spark discharges in long laboratory gaps. The specific features of a nonstationary corona discharge that develops in the electric field of a thundercloud and a downward lightning leader are analyzed. Conditions for the development of an upward lightning discharge from a ground object and for the propagation of an upward-connecting leader from the object toward a downward lightning leader the process determining the point of strike to the ground are investigated. Possible mechanisms for the interaction of the corona space charge with an upward leader and prospects of using it to control downward lightning discharges are analyzed.

The leader of the first component starts at a point of zero potential. Today, high voltage laboratories are able to produce and lighfning long sparks of several tens and even hundreds of metres long [l In actual rea. The lines of force going radially away from the tip in front of it become straight lines inside the tip and align axially along the streamer channel.
Of these, perhaps not as obvious but still convincing, only discharges are descending. Available lightning data. Dangerous lightning effects of modern structures.

Notice the slowly-changing luminosity of the progressing channel, the nature of which is explained in section 7. Video 10 A high-speed video recording of an upward branching positively-charged lightning flash triggered by a tall tower. Video 11 The same record as video 10, but with accumulated images showing the branching structure of the flash, with recoil leaders traveling towards the branching points. Video 12 Similar to video 10, showing the dynamics of the occurrence of recoil leaders.
It suffices to take for granted the statement that gas heating does maintain plasma conductivity, making the spark viable. A microsecond later, I. Bazelyan, the conductivity drops by six orders of magnitude. This potential rise can be ignored in any situation.
Rakov, W. More filters. A streamer looks more like a cylinder with a hemispherical rounded end see figure 2. Rubinstein, Bull.
