Much of this material on the theory of lightning detection comes from the University of Arizona, Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences. The original lecture notes are found here. http://www.atmo.arizona.edu/students/courselinks/spring13/atmo589/ATMO489_online/lecture_22/lect22_lightning_location_pt1.html
