About Lightning Research

The Lightning Team exists as a group of researchers, mostly scientists and engineers. As part of their research activities, the members of this team have been investigating the causes and effects of lightning as well as analyzing a wide variety of atmospheric measurements related to thunderstorms.

One of the primary objectives of this group is to determine the relationship between the electrical characteristics of storms and precipitation, convection, and severe weather. In order to achieve this objective, the Lightning Team has designed, constructed, and deployed numerous types of ground based, airborne, and space based sensors used to detect lightning and characterize the electrical behavior of thunderstorms. The data collected by the Lightning Team is routinely shared with scientists around the globe, resulting in numerous advancements in the field of Atmospheric Science.

Lightning Primer and File Cabinet and Bookshelf are available along with the featured links below.
