Abstract

GPS tropospheric delay is important in meteorological studies and lightning is one of the phenomena that occur in the atmosphere that has prevented its effects. This paper aimed to study the response of zenith tropospheric delay (ZTD) towards the lightning strike in Antarctic Peninsula. The frequency of lightning on a daily basis are selected in a 30 minutes’ time frame in 2013 between latitude of 60 °S to 80 °S and longitude of 50 °W to 90 °W where the lightning strike mostly occurred. The ZTD values in this work are derived by using the TroWav (ZTDG) and ZTD ANFIS (ZTDA) while the zenith path delay (ZPD) from NASA are used as a reference data to compare the ZTDs derived from the two models. Results show that the ZTD from selected stations show a good relationship with ZPD from NASA. A total of 36 strikes occurred in 2013 with the most strikes occurring on May 20th and the least strikes on January 31st. The calculated ZTD show the longest strike was on January 17th with length 2.32 m while ZTD for May 20th was 2.30 m. This implies that the interaction between ZTD and frequency of lightning strike is variable, whereby the ZTD is affected by the lightning strike energy and not just the amount of lightning strikes.
