Resum
What are the characteristics of lightning that influence the probability that an individual stroke will ignite a wildfire? It is generally accepted that long continuing current following some return strokes is the cause of ignition in forest fuels. However, because these low-level currents are not detectable with operative Lightning Location Systems, other lightning characteristics correlating with its occurrence have been proposed and used to estimate ignition probability. These variables are t...
