Energetic radiation from thunderstorms and lightning.

Remote sensing of lightning from space and by lightning detection networks 

Results from the Atmosphere-Space Interaction Monitor (ASIM) mission.

Thunderstorms, flash floods and severe weather 

Lightning and climate

Modeling of thunderstorms and lightning

Now-casting and forecasting of thunderstorms

New airborne and ground-based observation techniques


Deadline for abstract submission is: 10 January 2019, 13:00 CET (Central European Time). Please don't wait until the last minute :-)
