The ground magnetic field variation in the extremely low frequency (ELF) range has been measured by an induction magnetometer at Kuju, Japan (KUJ; M.Lat. = 23.4 degrees, M. Lon. = 201.0 degrees) since 2003. The first mode of the Schumann resonance (SR) around 8 Hz can be seen at KUJ. The SR in H (horizontal northward component) shows maximum peaks around 08 UT and 15 UT. In the case of D (horizontal eastward component), the SR shows its maximum peak around 08 UT. These peaks are coincident with the enhancement of lightning activity in Africa and Asia. Thus, we found the influence of the lightning activity on the observed SR at KUJ.
