Abstract : The article describes a method of constructing charts of lightning distribution over the European USSR on the basis of data obtained during the period 1958-1960 by means of the European cluster of direction-finding equipment. Characterizing thunderstorm activity not by the number of thunderstorm days, but by the number of lightning strokes in the examined territory is proposed. The direction-finding method makes it possible to obtain charts of the average distribution of discharges in various periods. These charts make it possible to trace the development of thunderstorm activity during a day.
