Lightning out of coverage!
WWLLN Data available
WWLLN Monthly CDs containing all stroke locations over the whole world for 1 month. These are mailed to subscribers each month, or they may opt to download the data weekly. Archival data are available for sale from August 15, 2004 to the present. Our site hosts receive a free monthly subscription.
WWLLN Data are available via internet with cadence every 10 minutes for research purposes from the University of Washington, or with a cadence of as fast as every minute (i.e. in realtime) from our commercial reseller. Contact Prof. Holzworth for more info.

Appropriate Climate Data

we used GISTEMP temperature anomalies [Hansen et al., 1999] in combination with the CRU 1961 – 1990 temperature climatology [New et al., 1999] and TRMM precipitation as data sources (Van der Werf et al. 2008. Climate controls on the variability of fires in the tropics and subtropics. Global Biogeochemical Cycles 22: GB3028.)



A series of quasi-global, near-real-time, TRMM-based precipitation estimates is available to the research community via anonymous ftp. Information for this directory can be found here. The estimates are provided on a global 0.25° x 0.25° grid over the latitude band 50° N-S within about seven hours of observation time. Three products are being provided:
A TRMM-calibrated merger of all available TMI, AMSR-E, SSM/I, and AMSU-B precipitation estimates (three-hourly accumulations).
A geosynchronous infrared estimate which is calibrated by the merged-microwave data (hourly estimates).
A combination of the first two fields (three-hourly accumulations).
The data are available under Users are urged to download the README first for additional details. Users are urged to download the README first for additional details. This site provides both Version 6 (V06) and Version 7 (V07) products, but the obsolete V06 is only intended to assist users in completing old studies. In most other cases, V07 should be used.//

There are also a series of products available at​The directories contain a wide variety of products described above. Please refer to the PPS Documentation before continuing to the FTP site, which describes naming conventions, product descriptions, and examples of how to read TRMM data products. The Documentation site also provides sample programs and tutorials for how to read in TRMM product data. Below we briefly describe the type of data provided within each directory://
3G: Provides gridded text data in daily files. Directories include:
3G01-4: Channel 4 VIRS
3G01-5: Channel 5 VIRS
3G68: 0.5 x 0.5 degrees
3G68Land: Australia, South America, Africa at 0.1 x 0.1 degrees
3G68-Q: 0.25 x 0.25 degrees
ByDate: Full HDF Files for each product arranged by date.
ByInstrument: Full HDF Files for each product, arranged by date.
GIS: PPS has developed prototype files of TRMM’s 3B42 Product in TIF files, which is compatible with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Data are arranged as 50°N-S time slices for each year, month, and day. More information on GIS Prototypes from PPS is available here. All products may also be obtained through STORM.
