Paper Abstract

Phenomenology of leader process of long spark was investigated with the help of ICC with internal intensifier. Fine structures of streamer zones were determined. Trend of their characteristics was done for sparks from 0.5 up to 100 m and voltage from 0.5 up to 5 MV. Characteristics were extrapolated on lightning using empirical models. Expected ICC pictures were done upward and downward lightning leaders. Ways of ICC use were discussed.
