Abstract:

During the summer of 1961 the electrostatic field of lightning strokes in the frequency range from 0 to 100 cps was recorded. Simultaneously, the distance from the lightning stroke to the recording station was determined by triangulation. This, combined with the electrostatic theory, allows a detailed analysis of the electric field of the lightning stroke. The results of this analysis are discussed.
