The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) Severe Storms Research Center (SSRC) has been developing an array of VHF lightning sensors to examine the real time, three dimensional evolution of lightning in the North Georgia area. Two LMA stations have been deployed in the metro Atlanta area for several years and have been contributing to the data stream from the North Alabama Lightning Mapping Array (NALMA) centered around Huntsville, Alabama. A third, existing station is undergoing site selection and deployment.

The array in North Georgia will soon be supplemented by adding five new LMA stations. The addition of these stations will allow the NGLMA to operate as an independent array. The development of the full NGLMA along with future research goals will be discussed.
