Extracted from the Preface:
"Our goal has been to produce a modern, graduate level textbook on the electrical processes of storms. The level of our treatment is designed for those with a basic understanding of meteorology or physics and provides the tools needed to explore this cross-disciplinary topic. Where background material is needed to understand the primary topics of this book, we present basic concepts from the broader context of atmospheric electricity, but these are not treated in as much detail as electrical processes of storms. In each subject area, we include enough references to the scientific literature to make this book useful to professionals, as well as to students."
