Performance Assessment of the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN), Using the Los Alamos Sferic Array (LASA) as Ground Truth

Abstract

The World Wide Lighting Location Network (WWLLN) locates lightning globally, using sparsely distributed very low frequency (VLF) detection stations. Due to WWLLN’s detection at VLF (in this case 10 kHz), the lightning signals from strong strokes can propagate up to 10 km to WWLLN sensors and still be suitable for triggering a station. A systematic… (More)
