3-Dimensional Lightning Observations Using a Time-of-Arrival Lightning Mapping System 2001-01-2881

A lightning mapping system has been developed that locates the sources of VHF radiation from lightning discharges in three spatial dimensions and time. The system consists of several VHF receivers distributed over an area of about 100 km diameter. The system locates VHF radiation sources over the array with an accuracy of about 100 m. The system locates sources out to 250 km from the center of the array with reduced accuracy. The observations are found to reflect the basic charge structure of electrified storms.
