IEEE EMC Technical Meeting

September 21, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Co-sponsored by: Mr. Robert Wood – Voltage Multipliers Inc. / Millennium Sales Inc.

The Huntsville Chapter of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society invites you to attend a Technical Meeting on September 21, 2017 featuring a talk given by Mr. Themis Chronis.  The program will begin at 5:30 pm with Robert Wood representing Voltage Multipliers Inc. / Millennium Sales Inc. sponsoring a free catered meal.  Mr. Chronis’s technical presentation will begin at approximately 6:20 pm after some short chapter status updates.


Synopsis: This presentation will provide the findings on lightning’s diurnal evolution on the global scale ceased to surprise the science community right after the beginning of 1900’s with the famous Carnegie cruise. These pioneering observations revealed a coherent thunderstorm diurnal behavior over the main convective chimneys (i.e. Africa, South America and the maritime continent e.g. South East Asia). Almost 100 year later, data from NASA’s Lightning Imaging Sensor reveal a novel diurnal behavior, this time from an energetic point of view. This behavior exhibits a noteworthy diurnal consistency which, with the help of ancillary observations and modeling, is attributed to the diurnal area extent variation of global thunderstorms.



The meeting will be held at ADTRAN in the East Tower, 2nd floor, Waterside Conference Room. The directions are included below (follow the Blue line on the map).

The meal and presentation are open to anyone interested in EMC: IEEE membership is not required to attend. Seating is limited to the first 48 people registered. Please RSVP/Register below.

Speaker(s): Mr. Themis Chronis,
