Seventh Conference on the Meteorological Applications of Lightning Data
Papers for the 7th Conference on the Meteorological Applications of Lightning Data are solicited for topics that address the Annual Meeting theme of user specific, integrated information. These include: 1) lightning warning and prediction of onset and cessation using observations and models, 2) the utility and impact of lightning data in operational warning and decision-making processes, and 3) lightning safety and protection.
Other solicited session topics include: 4) lightning in tropical cyclones, 5) lightning data assimilation and use in numerical weather prediction, 6) recent advances in lightning technology and transfer of that technology from research to operations, 7) lightning climatology, 8) lightning’s role in atmospheric chemistry and the global electric circuit, 9) scientific applications of lightning photography and videography, 10) lightning physics, and 11) general applications of atmospheric electricity and lightning data.
