CAMEX-4 DC-8 LIGHTNING INSTRUMENT PACKAGE (LIP) V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The CAMEX-4 DC-8 Lightning Instrument Package (LIP) dataset was collected by the ER-2 Lightning Instrument Package (LIP), which allows the vector components of the electric field (i.e, Ex, Ey, Ez) to be readily obtained, and thus, greatly improves our knowledge of the electrical structure of storms overflown during the CAMEX-4 campaign. 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). Total lightning (i.e., cloud-to-ground, intracloud) is identified from the abrupt electric field changes in the data. The conductivity probe measures the air conductivity at the aircraft flight altitude. Storm electric currents can be derived using the electric field and air conductivity measurements.
