Paper Abstract

The estimate on spatial distribution of lightning flash density over North Asia (40-80 N, 60-180 E) is presented from results of instrumental observations by the World wide lightning location network (WWLLN) during 2009-2014. There are two massive thunderstorm centers. The lightning density dependence on longitude and latitude caused by west air transfer and storm activity northward decrease is revealed. The region of Yakutia is considered individually.
