Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on TRMM Science Data V4

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) Science Data was collected by the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS), which was an instrument on the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission satellite (TRMM) used to detect the distribution and variability of total lightning occurring in the Earth's tropical and subtropical regions. This information can be used for severe storm detection and analysis, and also for lightning-atmosphere interaction studies. The LIS instrument made measurements during both day and night with high detection efficiency from January 1, 1998 through April 8, 2015. This dataset consists of lightning count and lightning density.
