I came across some data on thermal neutron backgrounds at sea level. They showed an almost doubling during thunderstorms. Here are some possible explanations: lighting strikes are generating nuclear events that emit neutrons. Or, is there a change in the stratosphere which allows more neutrons to bombard earth? Or, does the electromagnetic storm influence the detectors (false signals)? Anyone know?
