  • We report on an attempt to examine quantitatively (but indirectly) the classical picture of the global atmospheric electric circuit: namely, the hypothesis that electric currents 4owing from global thunderstorms up into the ionosphere (also known as Wilson currents) cause a steady charging of the ionosphere (representing the upper plate of the geocapacitor). For this purpose, we have applied an earlier numerical model of the global ionospheric electrostatic potential. This model consists of a… CONTINUE READING
