GOES-R Series Faculty Virtual Course: Geostationary Lightning Mapper

GOES-R Series Faculty Virtual Course: Geostationary Lightning Mapper
  • Explain how the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) detects lightning and how this differs from land-based lightning detection
  • Describe the following three GLM terms and how they relate to each other: Events, Groups, Flashes
  • Provide at least four examples of GLM data that can be useful for operational guidance and research
  • Identify a lightning jump and explain what it may be indicating
  • Describe important characteristics of GLM data including what type of lightning it detects, the product latency, and what the detection rate is
