Our Contribution to WWLLN

I have often wondered just what the contribution of our lightning detectors at SANAE IV (Antarctica) and Marion Island are to the global distribution of lightning detected by WWLLN. Now, with the images below I have a pretty good idea.

Mostly Africa and South America, but also some locations at much greater distances. Cool.
