This would reverse (seemingly) the order of precedence - convective elements with negative discharges initially, leadi ng to stratiform, anvil-like portions with positive discharges subsequently, We will hereby reexamine some factors that might contaminate these data, falling broadly in two areas: 1) Confusion with, or synchronous intracloud flashes, and 2) Instrument detection limitations.
