TRMM LIS Data Sets

Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS)

The Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) is a space-based lightning sensor aboard NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. The LIS instrument records the time of occurrence of a lightning event, measures the radiant energy and estimates the location during both day and night conditions with high detection efficiency.

LIS Space Time Domain Search TRMM LIS Space Time Domain Search
The TRMM LIS Space Time Domain Search tool provides a "point and click" method to quickly perform a space time domain search of TRMM-LIS science products. The search results list the granule names that contain lightning in the selected area of interest. It also provides the total count of lightning detected in the area of interest for each granule. TRMM-LIS science products from January 1998 to present are available.
