Paper Abstract

There were found 94 trains of radiosignals of lightning flashes from 4 thunderstorms in 2010-2012 years of observation over Yakutia. As it was considered in literature, 91% lightning flashes were negative. There were only 8 flashes with positive discharges. Lightning was found to be able to contain about 11 return strokes; the average is 3-4 strokes per flash. The time interval between subsequent strokes generally varies within 130 ms with the mean of 50 ms. One interval was found to be over 300 ms.
