In February 2017, the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) was launched and
installed on the International Space Station (ISS). ISS LIS measures the amount, rate, and energy of
lightning flashes around the world, at higher latitudes than were
previously possible. In this talk, the NASA Global Hydrology
Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) provides
an overview of the ISS LIS near real-time and research quality data
that allow for the study of lightning in hazardous weather over much of
the Earth. This webinar will include demonstrations on how these new ISS
LIS data products can be used within Python, GIS and other applications
to study lightning that occurred during the 2017 hurricane season.
