During the past 30 years there have been a few opportunities for simultaneous observations of lightning by ground-based and satellite-borne observing systems. In 1977, the USAF DMSP recorded optical emissions from several lightning flashes in a storm near Florida during a period of time when ground-strike locations within the field of view were being found(More)
Satellite-based VHF lightning detection is characterized at GPS orbit by using a VHF receiver system recently launched on the GPS SVN 54 satellite. Collected lightning triggers consist of Narrow Bipolar Events (80%) and strong negative return strokes (20%). The results are used to evaluate the performance of a future GPS-satellite-based VHF global lightning(More)
[1] Lightning type identification of temporally coincident optical-VHF time series event pairs collected by the Fast On-orbit Recording of Transient Events (FORTE) satellite’s photodiode detector (PDD) and VHF instrument allows for the investigation of optical properties as a function of lightning type. General trends in the peak optical irradiance and(More)
