Advanced prediction and alerting through total lightning detection
Total Lightning Sensor Network
WZTLN significantly improves severe weather warning times over radar and other technologies by incorporating highly advanced predictive capabilities, improving severe storm warning lead times and comprehensive weather management planning.
PulseRad is a radar alternative based on total lightning detection providing continuous proxy radar coverage updated every minute for regions not covered by radar. It enables advanced warning and nowcasting of building storms, ensuring accurate alerting with increased lead times.
Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts (DTAs)
DTAs provide 50% greater lead time on average, than other alerts. These severe weather alerts are issued when our Total Lightning Network detects high rates of lightning and potentially dangerous conditions.
WZTLN is a business partner of Earth Networks making it part of a global lightning network with more than 800 sensors in over 40 countries.
Why WZTLN is leading the industry
Most accurate cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning detection, providing improved lead times for identification of storm cell growth.
WZTLN sensors have an industry-leading broad frequency range extending from 1 Hz to 12 MHz that detects both in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning.
Over the last 6 months Weatherzone has almost doubled the number of sensors installed in Australia providing unparalleled network coverage.
WZTLN achieves less than 1% false positives by employing time-of-arrival detection methodology along with GPS technology and sophisticated algorithms.
