lightning detection network

An integrated array of lightning direction finders that provide information for trigonometric location of cloud-to-ground lightning discharges.

Timing and direction information from individual receivers are combined to provide evolving maps of lightning occurrences across vast regions that sometimes reach beyond the range of storm surveillance radars.
