Abstract
One of the recent discoveries is the detection of X and gamma rays produced by lightning flashes, sometimes detected from space as terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs). In northeastern Spain, several facilities and approaches are now used to study the production of these emissions. One of them is the mountain top instrumented tower near La Molina in the Pyrenees. It is capable of measuring lightning currents and in 2011 will be equipped with scintillation detectors for energetic radiation detect...
