WeatherBug, Inc. Key Developments

Earth Networks Expands Global Network

Earth Networks has expanded the Earth Networks Global Lightning Network (ENGLN) with a major upgrade to its long-range global lightning detection capabilities. The enhanced performance is a result of a continuing partnership with the University of Washington's World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN). This network enhancement more than quadruples the existing WWLLN network resulting in a global detection efficiency improvement of 230%. Long-range lightning detection is critical for the advanced notification of severe weather phenomena such as cloud-to-ground lightning strikes, heavy rain, high winds, hail and tornadoes. ENGLN is the first total lightning detection network deployed globally. It includes more than 1,200 sensors that incorporate patented systems and technology to provide unmatched lightning detection network performance. The positioning of new sensors complements Earth Networks' comprehensive lightning detection in remote regions as well as densely populated areas. The average distance between sensing stations is now greatly reduced, making precise lightning detection possible worldwide. Earth Networks provides total lightning data from ENGLN to many federal agencies including NOAA, NWS and DOD for enhanced forecasting of severe weather and associated protection of life and assets throughout the US and around the globe. The network also powers severe weather alerts for real-time monitoring and notification to enterprises and organizations.
