Lightning Imaging Sensor flash counts during (a) 2012, (b) 2013, (c) 2014, and (d) 2012–14, along with the GLD360 stroke counts during (e) 2012, (f) 2013, (g) 2014, and (h) 2012–14. The color scale differs for (d) and (h), with colors representing 3 times the values depicted in (a)–(c) and (e)–(g). The limited LIS view time accounts for the much smaller LIS flash counts.
