Abstract: In this report, a newly-developed lightning observation network system is outlined. The network consists of an optical observation site (Padang in Indonesia) and three electromagnetic observation sites (Pontianak in Indonesia, Tainan in Taiwan, and Saraburi in Thailand). At Padang site, a small low-light CCD camera was installed to observe the optical emission of lightning flash. On the other hand, a monopole, a dipole, and a set of orthogonal loop antennas were installed at each site to detect electromagnetic waves in the frequency range of 0.1-40 kHz. The obtained data are analyzed to monitor lightning activity in Southeast Asia in various spatiotemporal scales and clarify severe weather phenomena which cause significant damages on the human activity.
