Merging data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) with information from two ground-based Very Low Frequency lightning detection networks and nine NEXRAD Doppler radar units along the U.S. Gulf Coast and in Guam, the UAH team led by Dr. Themis Chronis, a research associate in UAH's Earth System Science Center, and UAH's Dr. Michael Briggs studied the characteristics of two dozen coastal and oceanic storms that produced TGFs (terrestrial gamma-ray flashes).

"As a result of our enhanced discovery rate, we were able to show that most TGFs also generate strong bursts of radio waves like those produced by lightning," said Michael Briggs, assistant director of the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research at UAH and a member of the GBM team.
Chronis, Briggs and their colleagues sifted through 2,279 TGFs detected by Fermi's GBM to derive a sample of nearly 900 events accurately located by the Total Lightning Network operated by Earth Networks in Germantown, Maryland, and the World Wide Lightning Location Network, a research collaboration run by the University of Washington in Seattle.
"We suspect this isn't the full story," explained Briggs.
