Short summary
The relationship between the tropospheric convection and the ionospheric phenomenology have been investigated in recent decades. In this work a relation between the lightning strike activity and the characteristics of the equatorial spread-F events is analyzed over the Brazilian region, and the results seem to support the hypothesis of some indirect interrelationship between both distinct phenomena.
