Daylight Spectra of Individual Lightning Flashes in the 370–690 nm Region Academic Article uri icon


  • An optical multichannel analyzer slit spectrometer coupled to a minicomputer was used to record lightning spectra. This is the first successful application of a slit spectrometer to the study of individual lightning flashes and it was accomplished in the daytime. Over 300 spectra were obtained in 1978 and 1979. -from Author
