Paper Abstract

In the present study the results of instrument measurements of thunderstorm activity and lightning parameters on the territory of the south of the European part of the Russian Federation is received. The automated hardware-software complex for thunderstorm activity sensing is developed. It consists of lightning sensors, electric field mills, meteorological radiolocator (MRL-5) for sensing the radar characteristics of clouds, meteorological stations and software for data collection, analysis and processing. Features of spatial-temporal variations of the thunderstorm activity and lightning parameters on the territory of 650 km around the measurement center of High-Mountain Geophysical Institute (Nalchik) were found. The relations between the quantities of intracloud, cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground (positive and negative) discharges were studied. Parameters of current of the lightning discharges of different polarities under the flat and mountainous terrain were received and analyzed in the paper.
