Abstract: Using Canadian National (CN) Tower lightning data acquired during the summer of 2005, the performance characteristics of the North American Lightning Detection Network (NALDN) were evaluated, including the flash detection efficiency, stroke detection efficiency, absolute location error, location accuracy model error (50%, 90%, and 99% error ellipses), and peak current estimation. The NALDN detected seven out of the seven flashes recorded at the CN tower, resulting in a 100% flash detection efficiency. Further…
