Abstract:
Some special features of cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning discharges in the verge of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau have been found by using the data from wide-band slow antenna system with 1μs time resolution. It has been found that (CG) lightning usually follows intracloud (IC) discharges. K-changes during the IC discharge part initiate from negative charge region and propagate downward to the lower positive charge region with an average speed of 1.5×107 m/s. The radiation waveforms of return stoke begin with a slow front which last for about 9.4 μs to about half of the field peak amplitude, and the zero-to-peak rise time was 10.9μs for negative first return strokes.
