Abstract:

Several thousand sferics direction-of-arrival photographs have been analyzed and averaged to give monthly average sferics activity as a function of direction-ofarrival at the NOLC field site. The information on thunderstorm frequencies throughout the world, as given in the United States Air Force Handbook of Geophysics, was analyzed to give rough predictions of the expected sferics activity. All results are given in the form of bar graphs that show predicted and measured values of the relative sferics activity for each 6 deg azimuthal sector. The predicted and measured values are similar in many respects, but significant differences do occur. Author
