Abstract Preliminary breakdown pulses (PBP) of 26 positive and 104 negative cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning flashes observed in winter thunderstorms in Hokuriku region of Japan are analyzed. Pulses in PBP train are mainly bipolar. Zero-crossing time of each pulse is about 7 us and total duration of each pulse train is about 1 ms. PBPs in negative CG lightning are classified as “BIL type” (59 cases) and “BL type” (45 cases). “BIL type” PBP contains an intermediate stage with little electric field… CONTINUE READING
