Abstract [en]

Electromagnetic fields from lightning can couple to electrical systems and produce transient overvoltages, which can cause power and telecommunication outages and destruction of electronics. Knowledge of electromagnetic fields at high altitudes produced by return strokes in cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning are required in the study of transient luminous events in the mesosphere. Electric and magnetic field pulses from various electrical breakdown events in the lightning are used in detecting and locating lightning flashes. Therefore, calculation of the electric and magnetic fields from different lightning processes has several practical applications. In this chapter, expressions for electric and magnetic fields are derived for charge and current configurations applicable to lightning. In general lightning currents and charges vary with time. First, simple expressions for non-time varying cases are presented. Then, electric and magnetic field expressions from time-varying lightning sources are presented.
