View from the DLR Falcon research aircraft while approaching the tropical storm 'Hector' over northern Australia. Scientists from the German Aerospace Agency (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) studied tropical storms on four continents. The focus was lightning, particularly the nitrogen oxides that are formed by lightning in the atmosphere.
