optical output is uncertain. Potentially mitigating this, however, is that the activity is literally occurring in the top of the thunderstorm, where cloud optical thickness is minimized. Issue 3 leads to lightning occurring deeper within the cloud, likely within regions of heavy precipitation ( Fuchs and Rutledge 2018 ). This leads to a “quenching” effect wherein the light from flashes does not sufficiently escape the optically thick portions of the cloud and thus may not get detected by GLM. The net
