The lightning phenomenon
People have always been fascinated by lightning. However, it was only in the mid-18th century that the link between lightning and electricity was established, thanks in particular to experiments by Benjamin Franklin. Since the 1980s, the development of lightning detection networks has helped us to improve our understanding, analyse and quantify the phenomenon. For the past 25 years, Météorage has been one of the leaders in the operation of such networks and associated services.
