Session 5 Lightning Detection Technology, Sensor Intercomparisons, and Applications

Wednesday, 9 January 2019: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
North 225AB (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: Ninth Conference on the Meteorological Application of Lightning Data
Michael Stock, Earth Networks, Lightning Science, Germantown, MD

Lightning detection capabilities continue to evolve. Ground-based networks are making advances, while space-based capabilities are soon to become operational. This session aims to discuss where we are as well as to outline the capabilities that will be coming in the near future. Intercomparisons are welcome to identify capabilities between different systems as well as potential synergistic applications.
