Abstract
The paper investigates lightning activity in the region of tropical cyclones (TC), its structure and changeability during the process of TC development and attenuation according to the data of the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN) as well as the relation with ocean surface wind fields according to the ASCAT scatterometer data. Distribution of lightning discharges in TC regions and discharge density fields drawn up from them allowed us to detect TC structure elements, such as mesovortexes, eyewalls, cloud bands and spirals, and to trace their change in space and time.
