LIS/OTD 2.5 DEGREE LOW RESOLUTION ANNUAL CLIMATOLOGY TIME SERIES V2.3.2014
Entry ID: lolracts

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The product is a 2.5 deg x 2.5 deg gridded composite of daily time-series of total (IC+CG) lightning bulk production, expressed as a flash rate density (fl/km2/day), representing a climatological year from the OTD, LIS and combined OTD/LIS missions. It is similar to the Low Res Annual Climatologies (LRAC) product but uses the space-and-time smoothing procedure employed for the Low Resolution Time Series (LRTS) daily gridded products, hence, it is appropriate as a baseline against which to compute anomalies in the LRTS product.
