Title: Lightning Datasets
Url: http://thunder.msfc.nasa.gov/data/
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: Using satellites and ground-based detection instruments, researchers have now mapped out lightning ratios for the continental United States. Optical Transient Detector (OTD) data from NASA report when a satellite detects lightning flashes across the globe for "daytime and nighttime conditions with a detection efficiency ranging from 40% to 65%, depending upon external conditions such as glint and radiation." Daily OTD data are provided for 1995-99, followed by summary data (annual, seasonal, monthly) of global lightning distributions for 1995-98/99.
