Abstract

Using observations made by the Finnish chain of pulsation magnetometers, we select typical properties of the ULF response to sprite-associated lightning events taken from the EuroSprite 2003 summer campaign. We concentrate on frequencies below the Schumann resonance and compare the obtained results with properties obtained from positive cloud-to-ground lightning discharges which are not associated with sprites. The latter we take from listings of the Meteorage Lightning Detection Network, which correlate with strong impulsive events seen in the Finnish chain. The evidence shows no unique and identifiable ULF signature relating to the sprite causative discharges.
