You surely wouldn't expect us to post and explain publicly Big Grin specifics on protected data, would you??? Lightning

Well, my number finally came up for purchasing equipment and joining the project.  In order to decide whether to proceed I wanted to know generally what lightning data can be obtained.  For example, I am interested if the system is able to resolve the following information:  lightning stroke current peak magnitude and approximate stroke duration.  Also does it attempt to resolve multiple stroke events?


Currently, generally because of erratic, variable data quality and incorrect station configuration information from a large number of these 'hobbyist" "experimental" stations, the answers to your queries are
"NO", "NO", "Yes, within klimitations"  The primary goal remains Detection and Location" accuracy.

The overall network is not yet sophisticated enough to produce reliable data for those, and some other, stroke parameters,  such as altitude and distance travelled, polarity,type etc..;. though a significant number of stations DO provide consistent, reliable data images.,  The computation and memory requirements are very intense.
Excluding the very complex 'altitude' and distance travelled approximation, a small group  of operaetiors, and some 'institutional' groups are working independently with your three query parameters using data from some select stations, while the system developers are free to focus on software, and general project development and improvement currently...

Hope this helps.
