This summer, you’ll still see the typical hikers, bikers and horseback riders in Aspen. But you’ll likely see far less unlicensed, off-road ATVs and OHVs, as Pitkin County works to more strictly enforce its ban on such vehicles.

Is the government cutting into residents’ fun or are these strict rules necessary to protect the area? http://bit.ly/2YOno6R

A Cell Tower In the Swiss Alps Is Struck By Lightning More Than 100 Times a Year – Slashdot

Taking note of the remarkable consistency with which lightning hits this 124-meter structure, researchers have adorned it with instruments for a front-row view of these violent electric discharges…

To anyone who has witnessed a lightning strike, everything seems to happen all at once. But [New Mexico Tech’s Mark] Stanley’s sensor captures several gigabytes of data about the many separate pulses that occur within each flash. Those data can be made into a video that replays, microsecond by microsecond, how “channels” of lightning form in the clouds…. [T]hey intend to use data gathered by the tower’s many instruments (which include a collection of six antennas called a lightning mapping array, two Rogowski coils to measure current, two B-Dot sensors to measure the current time-derivative, broadband electric and magnetic field sensors, and a high-speed camera) to reconstruct the total path of strikes soon after they happen, tracing the electromagnetic radiation all the way back to its original source…

The Santis team’s work has held particular relevance for wind farm operators. That’s because most strikes recorded at the tower are examples of upward lightning — which travels from ground-to-cloud instead of cloud-to-ground.

They hope to eventually help make progress on predicting where lightning will strike.

And by the end of this year, the team at the tower expect to record their 1,000th lightning strike.
