Caption: Lightning strike map. The lightning strikes (coloured dots) are plotted on a map of Italy. Lightning can be detected from many kilometres away by the radio waves it produces. These lightning strikes were recorded by 16 IMPACT (Improved Performance from Combined Technology) detectors, using a combination of radio antennas and GPS (Global Positioning System) technology to triangulate the location of each strike. The detectors are part of the SIRF (Sistema Italiano Rilevamento Fulmini) lightning detection network, formed in 1994 and operated by CESI (the Italian Experimental Electrotechnical Centre), based in Milan, Italy.
