LIGHTNING IMAGING SENSOR (LIS) SCIENCE DATA V4
Entry ID: lislip

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) is an instrument on the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission satellite (TRMM) used to detect the distribution and variability of total lightning occurring in the Earth's tropical and subtropical regions. This information can be used for severe storm detection and analysis, and also for lightning-atmosphere interaction studies. The LIS instrument makes measurements during both day and night with high detection efficiency.
