Cordoba Argentina Marx Meter Array (CAMMA) Level 2 Data

Summary

This data set contains the lightning mapping data from the Cordoba Argentina Marx Meter Array (CAMMA) sensor network that was deployed by the University of Alabama in Huntsville during the RELAMPAGO (Remote sensing of Electrification, Lightning, And Meso-scale/micro-scale Processes with Adaptive Ground Observations) field season.

  • 1.1 (2019-08-06):

    The version 1.1 data only provide sources located at a distance less than 100 km from the best performing CAMMA station (CAMMA11). Sources at a far distance from the network were observed to have large uncertainties in the determination of their height. These large height errors at far range are due to the fact that CAMMA root mean square timing error is large (150 ns) when compared to a network such as the LMA (40 ns). Importantly, code for version 1.1 also corrected programming bugs observed for version 1.0, allowing for the number of lightning active period Level 2 output data files to increase by about a factor of 2.

(Only the current version of the data is available to order. If you have questions about a prior version, please email us.)
