Paper Abstract

The parameters of lightning discharges were estimated using long-term data of the automated system of lightning detection. It was shown that the dynamic monitoring of these parameters is an effective step towards solving the problem of lightning protection. Studies of electrical parameters of discharges in the atmosphere using the data of the geophysical monitoring system, including a network of automatic lightning sensors LS8000, comprise more than five million lightning discharges for the South of Russia territory during 2009-2017. The values of lightning discharges parameters obtained during the observation period make it possible to identify the main characteristics. The regularities of changes in the parameters characterizing the electrical activity of the atmosphere in different periods of time and in different climatic zones of the southern region of the Russian Federation were investigated. Modeling with use of the statistical dependences approximation built on the distribution data reveals the main factors affecting the distributions and makes it possible to carry out the territorial zoning according to the degree of emerging risks.
