In this paper, EET, VILD, Z volume scans, CAPPI, and CAPE will be synergistically employed to address the following question: "What are the convective characteristics of TGF-producing storms?"
3a and 3b, the VILD maps for the individual TGFs (Figs.
This storm exhibits EET and VILD values ranging from 9.39 to 16.06 km and 0.02 to 4.4 g [m.sup.-3], respectively (median values are 13.94 km and 0.71 g [m.sup.-3], respectively; see Table 1).
The respective maximum VILD values are computed as 1.53 g [m.sup.-3] with a median of 0.8 g [m.sup.-3] (see Table 1).
This storm exhibits EET and VILD values ranging from ~9.0 to 12.4 km and from 0.14 to 1.64 g [m.sup.-3], respectively (median values are 11.52 km and 0.35 g [m.sup.-3], respectively; see Table 1).
The respective maximum VILD values are computed as 2.42 g [m.sup.-3], with a median around 0.4 g [m.sup.-3].
CAPPI values throughout our sample are consistent with the observations pertaining to the VILD, in that TGF-producing storms span from relatively deeper to relatively shallower convection.
No NEXRAD product is bias free, and retrievals such as EET and VILD are dependent on parameters such as distance from the radar, storm propagating speed, and updraft structure (e.g., tilts) (DeLobbe and Fiolleman 2006; Howard et al.
Regardless of the chosen VILD statistic (e.g., maximum, median, or 25% percentile), the VILD values in TGF geolocation uncertainty regions demonstrate that storms that are defined as (relatively) shallow or deep convection can still produce a TGF (Fig.
For instance, the fact that the range of the VILD maxima has a lower bound of VILD = 0.54 g [m.sup.-3] (Fig.
