© Crown copyright Met Office Acknowledgement Most of this work has been done by Andrew Mirza (some help from Lauren Reid) Thanks also due for use of lightning data (Sferics), and for availability of US products
© Crown copyright Met Office Summary of presentation Background on lightning detection system (Sferics) used to perform verification Results of verification Conclusions/Recommendations
© Crown copyright Met Office Met Office Sferics system System detects the vertical component of electromagnetic radiation generated by a lightning discharge at around 13 kHz (VLF) received at a number of `sensor’ sites Strong EM emissions around 13 kHz Caused by rapid neutralisation of charge, in the lowest few hundred metres of C-G stroke Atmospheric attenuation minima close to 13 kHz The atmoSFERIC wave can propagate over thousands of kilometres along the earth / ionosphere waveguide 12 sensors in the current network connected to Exeter by communication links Received digitised waveforms sent to the Flash Location Processor (FLP) via a Data Collection System (DCS) located in a `fire-walled’ DMZ Location of a `flash’ or `fix’ determined by the Arrival Time Differences (hence ATD) Differences between at least 4 sensor out-stations are used to calculate lightning position by iterative method

© Crown copyright Met Office Cb verification – data to be presented In the WAFS Science meeting in April in Washington we presented results for November 08 and January 09 We were asked to generate statistics for N Hemisphere summer, e.g. May 09-July09 There were data availability problems for July 09 (data for the UK SIGWX charts are not available, only 60% of US GRIB data available) We present data for May 09, June 09 and July 09 today We have plots for November 08 and January 09 if people are interested

© Crown copyright Met Office Conclusions Overall “winner” appears to be US manual product (ranked first for combined latitudes for all five months under consideration) However this ranking reflects the number of grid-points in each latitude zone Number of flights per year is a function of latitude, strongly peaking in north UK Automated product is ranked first in this zone in Nov 08, Jan 09, and May 09 US Automated product shows useful skill in the tropics There is limited data available in NH polar and SH extra-tropics Any overall results are very sensitive to exact details of verification scheme Further work was addressed in earlier presentation
