NICORA, María Gabriela et al. Actividad electrica asociada a la erupción del complejo volcánico Cordón Caulle durante 2011. Meteorologica [online]. 2013, vol.38, n.2, pp.121-131. ISSN 1850-468X.

A study of the lightning activity generated by the eruption of the Cordón Caulle volcanic complex during June 2011 was performed using the World Wide Lightning Location Network data. The observed lightning activity corresponds to the volcanic plume electrical activity with a good correlation between the lightning count and the volcanic plume height. Although the detected lightning activity was low, the results agree with previous studies and show that lightning activity could be used as a proxy of the volcanic activity. This study also shows the feasibility on the use of the network for early volcanic eruptions detection.

Keywords : Lightning activity; Cordón Caulle volcanic complex; WWLLN.
