Previously, atmospheric physicists could approximate lightning bolt energy by measuring the electrical currents and temperature of the bolts as they occurred, but those numbers were never precise.

So USF Associate Professor Matthew Pasek and his colleague Marc Hurst of Independent Geological Sciences Inc. looked at what's left behind…<div>
