Abstract
In the summer of 2011 a three-dimensional lightning mapping array (LMA) has been deployed in the Ebro delta and surrounding area, in eastern Spain. This area was chosen for its proximity to both summer storms over land and autumn/winter thunderstorms over sea, which often produce transient luminous events (mainly sprites and elves). The delta also offers a wide open and accessable space suitable for simultaneous high-speed camera, x/gamma-ray and electric field observations of lightning. Current...
