Dear Colleagues,
We cordially invite you to present your research at the 18th AOGS annual meeting. The meeting will be held virtually from August 1st – August 6th, 2021.  Abstract submissions are open and due February 23rd, 2021.  More information can be found on the meeting’s website: AOGS2021 (asiaoceania.org/aogs2021)<https://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2021/public.asp?page=home.html>.

Session description for AS18- Thunderstorms, lightning and their effects on human society

Lightning is a global natural hazard, lethal and destructive on short time scales and have important climatic effects on longer time-scales (through NOx production and forest fire ignition). It is accompanied by severe weather, hail and flash flooding that often cause significant economic losses. The intensity and nature of convective storms and lightning in future climate conditions have not been well understood or predicted. In an era of climate change, human societies are becoming more vulnerable to extreme weather events, therefore lightning prediction and detection are essential for aviation, shipping and public safety. We invite contributions dealing with the physical and chemical processes in thunderstorms and lightning and their effects on the atmosphere. We seek contributions dealing with convective storms, cloud electrification, numerical weather forecasting of thunderstorms and lightning, and regional and global detection networks. Of special interest will be works on global lightning patterns in an era of climate change (especially in the Asia-Oceania region), satellite-based studies of thunderstorms and other remote-sensing technologies, as well as urban effects on lightning. We also welcome talks on lightning effects on the upper atmosphere, including TLEs, TGFs and energetic particles.
