Abstract

The near-ground detection of atmospheric γ radiation (GRR) associated with lightning was studied. An anomalous increase in the GRR(AGR) shortly after lightning strokes was concurrently observed at two sites separated by a distance of 220 m. It was found that the background subtracted GRR was directly related to precipitation rates.
