primarily of small flashes (e.g., Bruning and MacGorman 2013 ), and electrical discharges in the overshooting tops (OTs; e.g., MacGorman et al. 2017 ). Unfortunately, the LMA deployment did not coincide with the GLM instrument on GOES-17 , which had a postlaunch checkout positioning near 89.5°W longitude earlier in 2018. This paper will describe the deployment of the RELAMPAGO LMA, document data processing and quality control procedures, explain the performance of the network, describe the LMA

; for consistency these were resampled to use data every 2 s. Data points within soundings that were not classified as “good” by the quality control system (i.e., those with a data flag greater than 1) were removed for this analysis. In two mobile soundings, the pressure measurements were flagged as in error for the entire profile. These two soundings were removed, leaving 2712 total soundings (575 mobile soundings) in the analysis. To illustrate the sounding locations with respect to convective

Yacanto is also annotated with a black arrow and black text. Table 1. Sounding types and specifications launched by the six mobile sounding teams (CSWR1, CSWR2, CSWR3, UI1, UI2, and CSU) and by the fixed DOE-ARM site (CACTI). All soundings collected data at 1 Hz and have various proprietary onboard data calibrations and error corrections (e.g., surface calibrations, telemetry error correction, hysteresis, or data packet/signal quality control measures). Specifications for the GRAW DFM-09 were

, with a maximum range of 480 km and a beamwidth of 0.98° ( Table 1 ). RMA1 is a simultaneous transmit and receive dual-polarization radar ( Table 1 ); however, within this study, dual-polarization data were not used, except for quality control (copolar correlation coefficient). RMA1 underwent upgrades during the month of November 2016, and thus, many events were likely missed during this time period as the radar was not operating (see Table 2 ). Table 1. Córdoba radar specifications. Table 2. RMA
