Atmospheric Electricity

Atmospheric electricity is the specimen of electrical charges in the Earth's atmosphere (or less commonly, that of another planet). The normal movement of electric charges between the Earth's surfaces, the various layers of the atmosphere, and particularly the ionosphere, taken together, are known as the global atmospheric electrical circuit. Much of the reasoning required to describe these currents lies within the field of electrostatics, but also requires understanding of other disciplines within Earth science.

The study of atmospheric physics dealing with the electrical phenomena and electrical properties of the atmosphere. The many studies of atmospheric electricity cover electric field, conductivity, ionization and electrical currents in the atmosphere; cloud and precipitation charge; space charge; and thunderstorm charge. All the phenomena of atmospheric electricity are closely interrelated and their development is strongly influenced by meteorological factors such as clouds, precipitation, rainfall and snowstorms. Processes occurring in the troposphere and stratosphere are also usually included in the realm of atmospheric electricity.
