Determining lightning polarity (positive or negative) by raw signal processing?
#14
I have received a signal from a lightning which saturated one of the H channels. Data from the european lightning detection network EUKLID could be correlated with this ligthning, it was a very strong negative lightning with -144 kA strength. The E field channel (magenta trace) goes POSITIVE in the first peak of the signal, so this is the signature for negative CG lightning. Positive CG lightning will first go negative in the E field channel.
