Abstract

There are various explanations about the origin of lightning during thunderstorms. A possible explanation is that the cosmic rays may be caused of triggers of lightning. In order to measure any correlations between atmospheric charged particles and atmospheric electric field, we have installed some atmospheric electric field meter inside the Tibet Air Shower Array (4,300m a.s.l.) since February 2010. In this paper, we report preliminary result of coincident observation of data from the array with single particle counting technique and atmospheric electric field during thunderstorm in the 2010 rainy season.
