Paper Abstract

The damage caused by thunderstorms increases year by year - this is due to an increase in thunderstorm activity, as well as urbanization, the development of new territories and the expansion of the use of microelectronics and microprocessor technology. The increase in thunderstorm activity is also associated with climate change and solar activity growth, and predicts further growth. This means that comprehensive research and long-term monitoring of thunderstorms are needed, and the importance of systematic analysis of lightning activity data, search for protection measures and warnings about the development of hazardous thunderstorms is increasing. In this article the authors presents the report about on the analysis of the data of remote observations of the network of sensors of auto - radar-rangefinder LS 8000 on the territory of the North Caucasus for the period from 2009 to 2016.
