Principles Of Lightning Physics. Author: Vladilav Mazur ISBN: Genre: Science. The book concludes by studying the action of lightning's electrical and magnetic fields and the lightning current on industrial premises, power transmission lines, underground communications, aircraft and their electrical circuits, and the induction of a dangerous overvoltage.

The fundamental question of lightning physics, how lightning initiates inside thunderstorms, has remained unanswered, despite the tremendous progress achieved in recent years in lightning research that has led to an understanding of many other physical processes in.

Principles of Lightning Physics presents and discusses the most up-to-date physical concepts that govern many lightning events in nature, including lightning interactions with man-made structures, at a level suitable for researchers, advanced students and well-educated lightning enthusiasts.

The author's approach to understanding lightning-to seek out, and show Cited by: 5. "This is Franklin's Lightning Dissipation Theory that proposes that the lightning rod on a building prevents a lightning strike.

It suggests that the lightning rod discharges the cloud over a longer length of time, thus preventing the excessive charge build-up that is characteristic of a lightning strike. This is the first book to cover essentially all aspects of lightning, including lightning physics, lightning protection, and the interaction of lightning with a variety of objects and systems as well as with the environment.

Accessible to the technical non-expert, it is addressed to anyone interested in lightning and its effects/5(8). "Lightning: Physics and Effects is the first book that covers essentially all aspects of lightning, including lightning physics, lightning protection, and the interaction of lightning with a variety of objects and systems as well as with the environment.

Lightning: Physics and Effects tells the reader what was done and by whom rather than focusing on physical phenomena. Another relatively recent book, Lightning Physics and Lightning Protection, by E. Bazelyan and me (IOP, ), concentrates on physical and Uman’s encyclopedic work will be extremely useful for specialists as a rich source of Cited by: 3.

Accessible to the technical non-expert, it is addressed to anyone interested in lightning and its effects/5(7).

Atmospheric physics is the application of physics to the study of the heric physicists attempt to model Earth's atmosphere and the atmospheres of the other planets using fluid flow equations, chemical models, radiation budget, and energy transfer processes in the atmosphere (as well as how these tie into other systems such as the oceans).

Physics is the basic physical rather recent times physics and natural philosophy were used interchangeably for the science whose aim is the discovery and formulation of the fundamental laws of nature. As the modern sciences developed and became increasingly specialized, physics came to denote that part of physical science not included in astronomy.

Physics (from Ancient Greek: φυσική (ἐπιστήμη), romanized: physikḗ (epistḗmē), lit. 'knowledge of nature', from φύσις phýsis 'nature') is the natural science that studies matter, its motion and behavior through space and time, and the related entities of energy and force.

Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and its main goal is to understand.

In ancient times, lightning was seen as a tool of the gods.

In Viking legend, it was Thor’s hammer striking an anvil in the sky that was responsible for lightning. For the Greeks, it was Zeus who threw lightning down to the earth. The current understanding of lightning physics is the focus of a new book published by physicist Vladislav Mazur, based on his more than 30 year career at NSSL.

Principles of Lightning Physics presents and discusses the most up-to-date physical concepts that govern many lightning events in nature, including lightning interactions with man-made. Abstract. An overview of the physics of cloud-to-ground lightning is given, including its initiation, propagation, and attachment to ground.

Discharges artificially initiated (triggered) from natural thunderclouds using the rocket-and-wire technique are discussed with a view toward studying properties of natural by: Physics is the study of energy, forces, mechanics, waves, and the structure of atoms and the physical universe.

Lightning can also be produced due to volcanic eruptions, extremely intense forest fires, etc. How many volts and watts are in lightning?

Lightning can have million to 1 billion volts and contains billions of watts. What color does the lightning appear to be?

Lightning can appear to be in many different colors. But usually, it is white or blue."Lightning Physics and Effects is not a lightning book; it is a lightning encyclopedia. Rarely in the history of science has one contribution covered a subject with such depth and thoroughness as to set the enduring standard for years, perhaps even decades, to come The overall quality of the printing is superb; the figures are excellent, and the Plate Section presents six classic pages of /5(5).
