Abstract
Lightning striking tall towers is mainly of the upward lightning type, which is characterized by the absence of a first return stroke and the presence of an initial continuous current (ICC) with or without superimposed pulses. The Säntis Tower is 124 m tall and it is located on the top of the Säntis Mountain (2502 m ASL) in the eastern Swiss Alps. The Tower location exhibited the highest lightning flash density in Switzerland during the period from 1999 to 2006. The Tower was instrumented in M...
