Abstract : At a station for whistler research outside Uppsala an investigation was carried out during three thunderstorm seasons (1958-60) with the special aim of discovering the relations between lightning discharges and the whistlers which followed them. The recordings were carried out during the summer seasons because it was better able then to check by direction finders both the regions of thunderstorm activity and the occurrence of individual lightning discharges. During periods of whistler activity it was possible to make simultaneous recordings of the geographical location of the actual lightning discharge, the atmospheric wave-form emitted, the numbers of partial discharges and whistlers which followed.
