After a short evaluation of the historic advancements of atmospheric electrical energy, this publication is going on facing the overall rules, effects, equipment, and the MKS method of the sphere. The succeeding chapters are dedicated to a few elements of electrical energy within the surroundings, similar to the prevalence and detection of ions, the air-Earth conduction present, and point-discharge and precipitation currents. those themes are by way of discussions at the upkeep of the Earth's cost; the correlation of Earth's cost with thunderstorm task and present; and mechanism of cost move in nonstormy rain and snow. The concluding chapters think about the phenomena of thunder cloud and the lightning discharge. those chapters additionally learn a number of theories in knowing the separation of Earth's cost.
This ebook could be of worth to physicists, atmospheric scientists, and researchers within the allied fields.
