Thunderstorms above two of the world's busiest shipping lanes are more powerful than storms in oceanic areas with less traffic, a US-based study has found after analysing 1.5 billion lightning strikes between 2005-2016. Aerosols from ship exhaust make cloud droplets smaller, lifting them higher in the atmosphere, thereby creating more ice particles and leading to more lightning, the study added.
