What is EUCLID ?

EUCLID (EUropean Cooperation for LIghtning Detection) is a collaboration among national lightning detecting networks with the aim to identify and detect lightning all over the European area.

The countries involved are Spain, Austria, Luxemburg, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Portugal, France, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Slovakia and Denmark. At the moment the complete network consists of about 147 sensors in these 27 countries, contributing to the detection of lightning.

The information coverage ranges from the Golf of Biscay to Warsaw and from Sicily to the North of Norway. There is no other project like EUCLID in the world, with so many lightning people connected together and compiles lightning information in Europe for a mutual area of interest in common ideas and results.

The Euclid network provides lightning data for Europe with homogenous quality in terms of detection efficiency and location accuracy.

Individual participating networks receive real-time access to the complete Euclid data and use this data to serve clients for national lightning data. Each network retains its national independence and provides lightning data for individual user applications in their own country as well.

The core operational applications for EUCLID include meteorology, hydrology, electric power utilities, communications, insurance, forestry, defense and aviation.
