Abstract
A detailed analysis of two lightning flashes is presented. High speed video, total lightning detections and electric field measurements are the basis of the study. In general, the observed negative cloud-to-ground flashes do not produced many VHF detections . In the negative flash, most of the detections are given in the fast increase of electric field at the beginning of the dart leader. An intriguing feature during negative leaders is the fast illumination of some branches espe...
