Abstract The electric field and conductivity of the atmosphere were measured above thunderstorms in the central Florida area in a series of twenty-five balloon flights made at altitudes ranging from 70,000 to 90,000 ft above sea level. These tests indicate that at these altitudes and for the storms investigated there is a positive current of approximately 1.3 A, on the average, flowing upward from the top of the thunderstorm toward the ionosphere and confirm Wilson's hypothesis that… Expand
