Thunderstorm cloud characteristic data set in China and surrounding areas (2010-2018)
File naming: it is stored in the structure data format of mat format data. The file name is "yyyymmdd_hhmm.mat", and yyyymmddhhmm respectively represents the time corresponding to the data (universal time, UTC): year, month, day, hour, minute, for example, 20100112_ 0000 means 0:00 on January 12, 2010.
Data reading method: the format of data file is mat file, which is a standard binary file and the standard format of MATLAB data storage. When reading data, you can directly use matlab to read. Some codes for data reading are as follows:
%Reading of single parameter
filepath=’\dataset\YYYY\YYYYMMDD_ hhmm. mat’;% Data path
load(path);% Open the data file
Area=TSC(1). Area；% Read the area of the first thunderstorm cloud
WWLLN_ lon=TSC(1). WWLLNstroke(:,8); % Read the longitude information of all lightning in the first thunderstorm cloud
S52_ Area=TSC(1). S52(2). Area; % Read the area of the first strong convection core in the first thunderstorm cloud
