Short summary
Lightning-produced NOx and ice particles were studied using airborne measurements in thunderstorm anvil clouds during the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry experiment (DC3). These data were compared with radar and Lightning Mapping Array (LMA) measurements. A characteristic signature was found in three anvils that relates the occurrence of frozen cloud droplets and aggregates of frozen droplets to the presence of lightning-produced NOx in these storms.
