Vaisala Thunderstorm Manager /PROFESSIONAL THUNDERSTORM TRACKING AND ALERT MANAGEMENT APPLICATION www.vaisala.com Vaisala Thunderstorm Manager Overview When it is your job to keep operations running efficiently, protect assets, or worry about the safety of people when severe weather approaches, you need easy access to timely and accurate information. Thunderstorm Manager is the latest software to assist you in tracking approaching storms. Vaisala Thunderstorm Manager is a web based application that helps you track approaching storms in real time. Several advanced tracking tools are available, such as radar and satellite overlays, radar proxy, and lightning risk prediction. You can use a desktop or mobile device browser to access the displays. One or multiple sites with alerting rings or polygons defining an alert region will serve to notify you about lightning taking place in the area. Notifications are sent by email or text to a cell phone. The Vaisala Thunderstorm Manager tracking system utilizes Vaisala’s Global Lightning Dataset (GLD360) for lightning detection anywhere, including oceans, and our high precision National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) in the US. If you have your own precision lightning detection network, the Thunderstorm Manager Server option can be used to display real time lightning and provide alert notifications to your users. Choice of web maps to display the lightning area Animate lightning, radar, and satellite by choosing a time period and speed Zoom and Pan with dedicated zoom area selection Individual user login Display of lightning polarity and graphical representation of the magnitude of each strike Toggle Day and Night modes Inspector Tool to display parameters for each stroke Display of cloud to ground and cloud to cloud lightning Time discrimination of lightning to determine the storm path through color coded symbols (0 to 25 minutes are in 5 minute increments, and 0 to 120 minutes are in 15 and 30 minute increments) Administrator role login Measure distance between two points (e.g. between strike location and asset) Display of coordinates that follow the cursor Advanced Monitoring and Operational Tracking Tools Radar (where available) with Lightning IR Satellite (where available) Storm Intensity and Lightning Threat Zone with storm tracking (optional) Radar Proxy (optional) Choose Your View - Cloud-to-Ground Lightning Only for up to 2 Hours Choose Your View - Total Lightning (cloud and cloud-to-ground) Applications If your operations require accurate lightning storm status over a small area, globally, or anything in between, rely on the most scientifically validated lightning networks in the world with close to 100% thunderstorm detection – Vaisala lightning networks.
