Abstract

The arguments and conclusions of the commented Williams and Stanfill article in relation to the validity of the thermal and aerosol hypotheses advanced in order to explain the land-ocean contrast in lightning activity are critically re-examined. This re-examination reveals that the analysis presented by these authors is incomplete, thus weakening the corresponding conclusions. © 2004 Académie des Sciences. Published by Elsevier SAS.
