Abstract
The size and duration of lightning flashes are examined. Data from the Ebro Valley Laboratory Lightning Mapping Array is used as reference. Additional data from the VLF/LF LINET network is included. In the analysis, each flash is simplified by a confidence ellipse fitting most of the detected sources. The major axis of the ellipse is adopted as the flash length. Flash durations are computed too. The analysis of 778 flashes results in a median flash length of ¿14 km with a median duration of ¿0...
