and Coauthors, 2010: Associations between Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor terrestrial gamma ray flashes and sferics from the World Wide Lightning Location Network.
Use of sferics is worth its own article, but I will say that for this kind of matching up I prefer the more sensitive strike mode to cell mode.
If you've spent much time considering thunderstorm avoidance and the tools available, you've probably heard this before: Nexrad and sferics are strategic tools; airborne weather radar is tactical.
The average level of sferics activity differed between the experiments due to the annual rhythm of sferics activity, as thunderstorms are more common in the summer.
Sferics detects lightning bearing relatively well, but range is a rough estimate, at best.
What makes the system different from other sferics is its ability to accurately detect and paint lightning at close range, as well as accurately detect the bearing of the strike.
First things first: Quality sferics gear displays most lightning activity in real time throughout the life cycle of a thunderstorm.
The G500 accepts oodles of remote inputs including the GDL69 XM receiver, a wide variety of traffic systems and the L-3 WX500 sferics.
Most owners tarted these airplanes up with all kinds of additional goodies, including traffic, dat-alink and sferics gear, so what used ones are out there are well equipped.
It consists of three separate weather sources--two satellite based and the third onboard sferics detection.
The antenna is a critical component of the system and like all sferics devices, it's susceptible to stray electromagnetic noise.
Why not a sferics device, which have been available for three decades?
