NASA ARSET - Introduction to Lightning Observations and Applications

Start Date:
March 26, 2024
End Date:
April 2, 2024
As the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events are likely to increase due to climate change impacts, lightning activity will likely increase as well, causing more power outages, increased risks of wildfire ignition, and increased numbers of injuries and fatalities. This three-part, introductory training focuses on global and regional lightning data products that can be applied to disaster risk preparedness.
Targeted Audience:
Remote sensing scientists, geospatial analysts, managers from local, state, and federal government, power companies, fire responders, geospatial analysts, academic faculty and students, and other practitioners in the field of remote sensing
Expected Outcomes:
By the end of this training attendees will be able to: -Identify common lightning causes, patterns, and potential for causing damage -Identify how space- and ground-based lightning observations are used to monitor lightning frequency and intensity -Identify resources for accessing lightning data products
