LIS/OTD 0.5 DEGREE HIGH RESOLUTION FULL CLIMATOLOGY (HRFC) V2.3.2014
Entry ID: lohrfc



Summary
Abstract: The product is a 0.5 deg x 0.5 deg gridded composite of total (IC+CG) lightning bulk production, expressed as a flash rate density (fl/km2/yr). Climatologies from the OTD and LIS missions are included, as well as a combined OTD+LIS climatology and supporting base data (flash counts and viewing times). Best-available detection efficiency corrections and instrument cross normalizations, as of the product generation date (09/01/06), have been applied.
