TRMM and Lightning Observations of a Low-Pressure System over the Eastern Mediterranean BY K . LAGOUVARDOS AND V. KOTRONI ^ ignificant cyclone activity occur s in th e Mediter- \ ranean area, mainly during the cold season. As J most of these cyclones for m over the sea, space- born e platforms are especially useful for observing thes e systems. Moreover, durin g the cold season, lightnin g usually occur s over th e relatively war m sur- face waters , an d thu s lightnin g detection data ca n also help us study the evolution of convective systems. OBSERVATIONS . Durin g 4- 6 Novembe r 2004, a low-pressur e system formed over the southern part of th e central Mediterranean, namely, over the Gulf of Sidra.
