Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM)
« on: June 26, 2019, 09:26:19 AM »

The Geostationary Lightning Mapper is a single-channel, near-infrared optical transient detector that can detect the momentary changes in an optical scene, indicating the presence of lightning. GLM measures total lightning (in-cloud, cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground) activity continuously over the Americas and adjacent ocean regions with near-uniform spatial resolution of approximately 10 km.

It would be nice to be able to view the data. I can't find anything other than sample images of prior data.
