GRIP LIGHTNING INSTRUMENT PACKAGE (LIP) V1
Entry ID: griplip

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Lightning Instrument Package (LIP) consists of 6 rotating vane type electric field sensors along with a central computer to record and monitor the instruments. The field mills measure the components of the electric field over a wide dynamic range extending from fair weather electric fields, (i.e., a few to tens of V/m) to larger thunderstorm fields (i.e., tens of kV/m). During the GRIP campaign the LIP instrument package flew aboard the Global Hawk aircraft.
