Task B


Nowcasting of lighting-related hazards


Objective: Provide a real-time demonstration of lighting activity nowcasting and quantification of the lightning intensity at European scale. In this way, the developed nowcasting system will have an additional module devoted to the nowcasting of lightning-related hazards.

In addition, using the methods developed in the HAREN project, the real-time precipitation nowcasting system will be reinforced by combining European-wide lighting information with OPERA radar mosaics.


Action B.1: Nowcasting of lighting-related hazards through European-wide lighting location data.

Action B.2: Improving heavy-rainfall nowcasting using lightning information.
