OLS ANALOG DERIVED LIGHTNING V1

Version 1
  • Abstract
    Global lightning signatures from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Operational Linescan System (OLS) have been analyzed from the filmstrip imagery. These signatures show up as horizontal streaks on the film images. The location of each of these streaks has been digitized in order to develop a preliminary database of global lightning activity. Monthly HDF data files are available for June and July 1973; Sept. - Dec. 1977; Jan. - Aug. 1978; Jan. - Dec. 1986; Jan. - Oct. 1987; Dec. 1988; Jan. - Dec. 1990; and Jan. - Dec. 1991.
