The effect of seawater total alkalinity on lightning flash intensity – SOM
This dataset contains the results of experiments designed to test the effect of Mediterranean seawater total alkalinity on the intensity of an electrical spark discharged into the water surface (LFI). The data includes the results of a number of experiments that tested the the dependence of LFI on different levels of alkalinity that were obtained by addition of HCl and NaOH to Mediterranean, followed by bubbling of the seawater with CO2 and resulting in consecutive decreases in pH. The results of these experiments show that LFI is positively dependent on the total alkalinity of seawater.
