Micro article and NASA Earthdata feature Dr. Rachel Albrecht's lightning research

The GHRC DAAC has published a micro article describing "Highlights from Albrecht et. al's 'Where Are the Lightning Hotspots on Earth?’ publication."  This publication in the November 2016 issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) described Dr. Rachel Albrecht’s research with the GHRC’s 16-year data record from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS). Albrecht’s resulting data product, the LIS 0.1 Degree Very High Resolution Gridded Lightning Climatology Data Collection, is also available from the GHRC.

Update (10/2/17): Dr. Rachel Albrecht has recently been featured in NASA Earthdata's Data User Profile portion of their website.

Update (10/26/17): Results from Dr. Rachel Albrecht's research were used as a question on the television game show Jeopardy! that aired on Oct. 25th (see pic courtesy of Chris Shultz). The data providing the answer to this question is available at GHRC See the GHRC Twitter page retweet.
