ABSTRAKT

A review of papers focused on investigating weekly cycles in various environmental parameters is presented. The existing studies are systematized according to the terrain where estimates have been obtained and parameters for which the weekly cycle has been revealed. Weekly variations in air temperature, atmospheric pressure, number of earthquakes, tropospheric ozone concentration, number of forest fires and other parameters are considered. Seven-day variations in the ELF noise intensity are analyzed using data obtained at the Ukrainian Antarctic Station "Akademik Vernadsky" and at the Low Frequency Observatory of the Institute of Radio Astronomy, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine at Martove village (Kharkiv region, Ukraine). A hypothesis is suggested to explain possible anthropogenic impact on the global thunderstorm activity.
