An East Coast Lightning Detection Network Academic Article uri icon


  • A magnetic direction-finding network for the detection of lightning cloud-to-ground strikes has been installed, and it records most of the ground flashes form Maine to North Carolina and as far west as Ohio. This area includes or touches 14 states and contains over a quarter of the population of the US. Time, location, flash polarity, stroke count, and peak signal amplitude are recorded in real time.-from Authors
