Abstract: The U.S. National Lightning Detection Network is a commercial lightning detection network operated by Vaisala. A network of over 100 antennae are connected to a central processor that records the time, polarity, signal strength, and number of strokes of each cloud-to-ground lightning flash detected over the United States. This dataset consists of a subset of data for the period of the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E).
