The creation at the Institute for Cosmophysical Research and Aeronomy of an instrument system for the synchronous recording of variations in the neutron flux, the electric field strength and the electromagnetic radiation during lightning discharges is reported. Preliminary results from measurements of neutron intensity using CHM-15 lead-sheathed and uncovered counters with 10-μs resolution are obtained during short-range lightning events in the vicinity of Yakutsk.
