In Phase One of the CEA project entitled, "Lightning Ground Flash Density Measurements in Canada", suitable instrumentation was selected, manufactured, and installed for the collection of lightning flash counts. The purpose of the present report is to describe Phase Two of the project, present the results obtained to date, and to provide some analyses of them. The process of accumulating accurate and reliable lightning information from a total of 74 Lightning Ground Flash Counters distributed across Canada is described and the distribution of ground flash density throughout Canada, thus obtained, is presented in the form of maps and graphs.
