ESSIC Faculty Research Assistant Patrick Meyers recently created a local post-storm animation of lightning flash density, as measured by the DC Lightning Array Mapper (DCLMA). The animation was picked-up and posted across several social media outlets, including the Facebook pages of the Washington/Baltimore National Weather Service Forecast Office and the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite – R Series (GOES-R) project office. The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang was also a distributor of the imagery through their Twitter feed. The animation has received over 10,000 social media views thus far.
