    Be Brief: Lightning

    As global temperatures rise, lightning strikes in the Arctic are becoming more frequent. A Michigan Tech detection station played a key role in gathering the data. Since 2010, Michigan Technological University has hosted one of the antennae in a global network used to detect and triangulate lightning strikes. Located on top of the Dow building, the MTU station played an important role in locating lightning for a recently published paper about lightning strikes increasing in the Arctic due to climate change.
