Paper Abstract

Instrumentation has been developed for investigating the ultraviolet and visible radiations that are emitted above certain thunderstorms at times of lightning discharges. These radiations are commonly known as sprites and blue jets. The main objective of this effort is to measure the electron temperature of these emissions. The instrumentation consists of a UV/visible imager with appropriate narrow band filters. Two photometers, each with a specified filter, complement the imager.
