Abstract
A large interest of the UPC lightning research group is the relation between processes occurring during lightning flashes and secondary phenomena, namely emission of highenergy radiation and transient luminous events in the layers above the troposphere, named sprites, jets and elves. In the framework of the Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) which will fly on the International Space Station in 2017, the group is involved with setting up infrastructure and observation campaigns to suppo...
