The exact physical mechanism responsible for the generation of fair weather electric field is not clearly understood. Some of the recent remarkable observations showed evidence for the horizontal fields in the magnetosphere and ionosphere which penetrate at least into the stratosphere and perhaps into the troposphere. In the present paper a gravity wave feed back mechanism for the coupling of the troposphere and the ionosphere has been discussed. The physical mechanism proposed can offer an…

Possible solar influence on atmospheric electric field

A physical hypothesis for the electrical coupling of the troposphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere has been proposed. It is shown that the vertical mass exchange takes place in the troposphere,

Observation of the variations of the atmospheric electric field at YBJ, Tibet

The variability noticed in fair weather atmospheric electric field (AEF) recorded at Yangbajin (YBJ, 90°31′50″E, 30°06′38″N), a continental station located at Tibet Plateau, China, during the period
