Lightning prediction application.
The project will: 
Identify and develop suitable existing data sets and data analysis algorithms and techniques which could be used to provide fault anticipation functionality
Develop a web-enabled software tool, building on existing and new databases, to predict lightning activity to a geographic area of 1km x 1km.
Field test, verify and refine this tool.
Assess operational implications of tool use.
