Abstract Dynamics of the cathode region formed by the streamer arrival is clarified on the basis of a computer simulation model and experimental investigations. Prebreakdown streamers in positive corona discharges, negative corona pulses, and {open_quote}{open_quote}breakups{close_quote}{close_quote} of cathode sheaths during glow-to-arc transition breakdown processes are discussed in this context. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
