  Information - NH1.04 Lightning (co-listed in AS)

Event Information
Lightning is considered as the second natural hazard after flash floods for
number of victims in human beings, that is why it matters to analyze the
importance of its dangerousness. This section prefers to treat "Lightning"
in the general meaning.
Lightning can be studied and analyzed under many points of view and each one
of this has to be presented for giving us a larger ?representation? of this
atmospheric phenomena and a deeper interpretation of its nature.
In this way all the contribution topics about lightning are welcome.
Contributions from atmospheric research regarding cloud physics and
lightning, lightning physics, modeled studies on the electricity of the
storms, lightning and global circuit, lightning in relation with middle
atmosphere events are appreciated. In addiction studies on lightning data,
data center management, operative use of lightning data, lightning detection
technologies and engineering of networks are welcome in order to merge
different fields of knowledge for improving the quality of our work on
