On the NOx generation in corona, streamer and low-pressure electrical discharges
2012 (English)In: Lightning Electromagnetics / [ed] Vernon Corray, IET , 2012Chapter in book (Refereed)
An assessment of the global distribution of nitrogen oxides (NOx) is required for a satisfactory description of tropospheric chemistry and in the evaluation of the global impact of increasing anthropogenic emissions of NOx. In the mathematical models utilized for this purpose, it is necessary to have the natural as well as man-made sources of NOx in the atmosphere as inputs. Thunderstorms are a main natural source of NOx in the atmosphere and it may be the dominant source of NOx in the troposphere in equatorial and tropical South Pacific.
