    Abstract

    Results from a new three-dimensional fractal model of sprites as well as recent experimental data on thundercloud charge moment changes associated with sprites indicate that ionized regions in sprites can sometimes reach thundercloud tops, creating favorable conditions for establishing a highly conducting link between the Earth's surface and the lower ionosphere.
