Abstract [en]

Observations from two geographical locations show that some lightning events are unique and specific to the respective thunderstorms. From the measurements conducted in a tropical country, Sri Lanka, and a temperate country, Sweden, it is observed that there are some lightning activities that are unique for each location. Narrow bipolar pulses (NBPs) have frequently been observed in the tropical thunderstorms and were not observed in the temperate thunderstorms, whereas isolated breakdown pulses (IBPs) have frequently been observed in the temperate thunderstorms and were not observed in the tropical thunderstorms. It can be speculated that NBPs are the unique features of tropical thunderstorms and that IBPs are the unique features pertinent to the temperate thunderstorms.
