CICS-MD Scientist Micheal Peterson has created a video that shows a spider lightning flash observed by the Lighting Imaging Sensor (LIS) on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite - a predecessor to GLM. It traces the lateral development of the optical energy of the flash as it evolves along its various branches.
The abstracts, slides, and posters presented at the recent CICS Science Meeting are now available for viewing on the CICS-MD website.
Using the GOES-16 GLM and ABI data, CICS-MD Scientist Michael Peterson created an animation of lightning within and around Hurricanes Harvey through Maria. To go to the CICS-MD Lightning Page and see the full animation, click on "Read More."
