The Physics of Lightning

A COMPREHENSIVE account of lightning, its effects, and techniques of investigation, written so that it is of interest to the expert and can be followed by the non-specialist.

Electrical Engineers are called upon to devise means of minimizing power failures caused by lightning; Telecommunication Engineers have to cope with surges on telephone lines and disturbances due to Atmospherics; Civil Engineers and Architects are faced with the problem of protecting buildings and other structures against lightning damage while the medical practitioner occasionally encounters casualties caused by it.

Although many scientists are expert in the particular aspect of lightning which is of immediate interest in solving their particular problems, a wider knowledge of it and its manifestations offers obvious advantages.

It is thus felt that a book devoted solely to the lightning discharge and thunderstorm electricity will meet a long felt need not only from the practical but also from the theoretical point of view.
