Announcement of NASA Workshop on Lightning-Related Research Beyond the Troposphere

From: Timothy Lang (timothy.j.lang at nasa.gov), Shing F. Fung (shing.f.fung at nasa.gov), Sarah Bang (sarah.d.bang at nasa.gov), Burcu Kosar (burcu.kosar at nasa.gov) and Mason Quick (mason.quick at nasa.gov)

This is to announce that NASA is organizing a virtual scientific workshop to be held on May 2-3, 2022. The goal of the workshop is to identify key lightning-related research topics and science questions that fall into gaps between the NASA SMD Divisions. The workshop will cover lightning-related phenomena occurring beyond the Earth's troposphere and will include (but not limited to) Transient Luminous Events (TLEs; e.g., sprites, jets), Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes (TGFs), sferics, electron precipitation from Earth's radiation belts, detection of bolides by spaceborne optical lightning mappers, lightning on other planets, and more.

In addition, NASA would like to gather information to describe how lightning-related research is being carried out by the community and determine how that work could be supported through better collaboration across SMD Divisions. The community's input will then inform the agenda of the upcoming workshop. Furthermore, this community input and the results of the workshop could help formulate future NASA research opportunities.  Community input on lightning-related research can be provided before 02/28/2022 @ https://TinyURL.com/NASALightning<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2FNASALightning&data=04%7C01%7Csabrina.savage%40nasa.gov%7C2969704787ae47c35ded08d9ea4bc2b6%7C7005d45845be48ae8140d43da96dd17b%7C0%7C0%7C637798433367047716%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=5aiTBQQ1rKbtew1GOgu5k9CVhtfx9P4%2FqtXoD2KUlbk%3D&reserved=0>.
