Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The motivation to write The Lightning Discharge was in large part derived from my own involvement in lightning research. That research was strongly influenced by almost 25 years of collaborative studies with E.P. Krider of the University of Arizona (21 co-authored journal articles) and recently by collaborative work at the University of Florida with W.H. Beasley and with E.M. Thomson. Most of the data taking for these studies has taken place at NASA Kennedy Space Center, Florida with the much appreciated help of W. Jafferis.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having purchased three of Martin Uman's publications I must admit that the knowledge gained for my own research where I live will be extremely helpful. Not only on the simplest aspects of how lightning starts, but what the actual flash consists of and subsequent return stroke initiation. The how, why and when of lightning and its characteristics will, for myself, be forever changed as to how it all works. Brilliant book, easy to understand but some knowledge of lightning would be advantages by the reader first up. Reading the books in sequence as one's educational journey advances is the key. Fascinating and rewarding...the best book purchases I have made.

Good, basic information and lots of observations. Illustrations are not very good resolution but passible. Needs updating as the book is dated. No mention of sprites.
