### Abstract

A study is made of the latitude dependence for the mean logarithm of the lightning current amplitude and the ratio of the number of strikes between clouds and to ground. The correlation coefficient in the first case is minus 0. 64, while that in the second is minus 0. 31. The corresponding linear-regression equations have been derived, which enable one to determine the likely values of these parameters as functions of latitude. The results are examined in the light of the latitude dependence of thundercloud parameters. If one eliminates the data obtained at low latitudes, the latitude dependence of the parameters becomes more pronounced.
