dc.description.abstractElementary processes capable of producing neutrons in thunderstorms are analyzed. Efficiency is evaluated of nuclear fusion, photonuclear reaction, electrodisintegration, and reaction inverse to the β-decay. An extraordinary strong electric field is required for nuclear fusion to occur in a lightning channel. The inverse to β-decay reactions are too weak. The generation of neutrons in a thunderstorm is connected with photonuclear and, to a lesser degree, with electrodisintegration reactions.en_US
