Fulgurites Used to Measure Lightning Strike's Energy

Fulgurites Used to Measure Lightning Strike's Energy

Study Provides a New Method to Measure the Energy
of a Lightning Strike By investigating “fossilized”
sand cylinders made by lightning strikes, sometimes
thousands of years old, a University of South Florida
professor provides a unique history of lightning and
the energy contained in a single strike.
