The global atmospheric electric circuit can be used to constrain the total amount of NOx produced by lightning (LNOx). Since the global atmospheric electric circuit is regulated by global thunderstorm activity and, more specifically, global lightning currents, we use the global electric circuit to quantify and place limits on the total amount of energy available from lightning. Using a production rate of 10 x 1016 molecules NO/J, we have calculated the global L NOx production on monthly, annual… CONTINUE READING
