TRMM-LBA LIGHTNING INSTRUMENT PACKAGE (LIP) V1

The TRMM-LBA Lightning Instrument Package (LIP) dataset consists of electrical field measurements of lightning from eight field mills, conductivity probe temperatures from two probes, and navigation data, for the period of January 22 through February 24, 1999. These data were collected by the LIP instrument flown aboard the NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft over the Amazon River basin in Brazil during the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission-Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (TRMM-LBA) field campaign. The LIP instrument was used to validate measurements by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS). These data are provided in HDF-4 format with browse imagery available in GIF format.
