“What it Takes to Achieve Continental-scale Total Lightning Detection”
Thursday, 31 March 2016 | 9 am CDT (14 UTC)
Online — Total Lightning is the detection of both cloud lightning and cloud-to-ground lightning, and this gives us a more comprehensive understanding of thunderstorm activity, which can deliver significant value to the meteorological, transportation, defense and energy sectors.
Join Vaisala for the “What it Takes to Achieve Continental-scale Total Lightning Detection” webinar, where we will discuss the science behind the U.S. National Lightning Detection Network, the technology that delivers continental-scale total lightning detection, and its application elsewhere in the world.
Speaker: Dr. Martin Murphy, Sr. Scientist at Vaisala
Dr. Murphy received his Master of Science and his Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences both from the University of Arizona in 1994 and 1996.
He is currently working as a Senior Scientist at Vaisala in Colorado, in the USA, and his projects include those targeted toward improving the performance of Vaisala lightning detection networks around the world, as well as short-term forecasting for wind power generation facilities.
He is the author or coauthor of over 30 papers and technical reports on various aspects of lightning detection and lightning warning, and is co-inventor on four patents related to Vaisala lightning detection systems.
His research interests also include organo-metallic compounds capable of binding carbon dioxide from air.
Dr. Murphy is a member of the American Meteorological Society, the American Geophysical Union, and the American Chemical Society.
The webinar will take place Thursday, 31 March 2016 at 14:00 UTC (check your local time here).
