Lightning Protection Systems

A lightning strike is the result of an electric discharge between the atmosphere and an object. Most cloud to ground strikes are concentrated to a physical location, which is referred to as a “termination”. Interestingly, the bright flash that we call a lightning strike is only about one inch in diameter, even though it seems to be much more significant to the naked eye, video, and photographs.
