About some question in modern models of thunderstorm runway breakdown

Presented by Mr. Mikhail ZELENYI
Type: Oral
Track: Mathematical Modeling and Computational Physics


In modern models based on runway breakdown and created for explaining initiation of lighting and TGF phenomenon, there has been a strong emphasis on peak of positron annihilation in observed gamma-ray spectra. This observation used as evidence importance of positron feedback in thunderstorms. But in this report, we give some result of Monte-Carlo simulations speaking about weak influence of positrons on thunderstorm processes and appearance of TGF.
