NRT Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Provisional Science Data

The NRT Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Provisional Science Data dataset was collected by the LIS instrument mounted on the ISS and are used to detect the distribution and variability of total lightning occurring in the Earth’s tropical and subtropical regions. This dataset consists of near-real time science data. This data collection can be used for severe storm detection and analysis, as well as for lightning-atmosphere interaction studies. The LIS instrument makes measurements during both day and night with high detection efficiency. Near-real time (NRT) data are available within two minutes of observation. The data are available in both HDF-4 and netCDF-4 formats, with corresponding browse images in GIF format.

NRT Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Provisional Backgrounds

The NRT Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Provisional Backgrounds dataset was collected by the LIS instrument mounted on the ISS. This dataset consists of near-real time background data. These background data were created approximately one to two seconds apart and provide the scene on which lightning can be plotted. This data collection can be used for severe storm detection and analysis, as well as for lightning-atmosphere interaction studies. The LIS instrument makes measurements during both day and night with high detection efficiency. Near-real time(NRT) data are available within two minutes of observation. The data are available in both HDF-4 and netCDF-4 formats.
