Sprite produced by consecutive impulse charge transfers following a negative stroke: Observation and simulation


On the morning of 5 June 2013, two cameras of the SpriteCam network concurrently captured a red sprite with diffuse halo over a mesoscale convective system (MCS) passing the panhandle area of Oklahoma. This sprite was produced by a negative cloud-to-ground (CG) stroke with peak current of!103 kA in amanner different from previous observations in several… (More)
