    Arc formation and surface flashover discharge on an ice-covered insulator are
    accompanied by the emission of light. Because of the presence of thermal ionization, arc temperature plays an important role in the understanding and modeling of arc propagation. This paper deals with measuring the temperature
    of the arc formed during flashovers on an ice sample using emission spectroscopic techniques. These techniques are known to provide a good understanding of the physics of ice surface discharge.
