Electric radiation fields produced by lightning cloud flashes have been analyzed using Fourier methods to obtain amplitude spectra for frequencies in the range of 20 kHz to 20 MHz. Time to thunder measurements were used to extract the distances to the cloud flashes from the measurement site. The spectra were generated by analyzing the first 10 ms time window of cloud flashes with 10 ns sampling resolution, and they show f-1 frequency dependence up to 2 MHz followed by f-2 dependence and higher… CONTINUE READING
