Abstract
This paper summarizes results obtained by the 2009–2010 field campaigns conducted in northeastern Spain using a high speed camera, VHF interferometer, VLF lightning location system and scintillation detectors for energetic radiation. The main purpose was to obtain new insight into the lightning processes which emit x/γ radiation. For just one (very close) lightning strike, 99 x-ray pulses were emittedwithin 0.86 ms and had an energy higher that 10 keV. This burst was associated with the final...
