  • The behavior of water in magma in the Earth is fairly well understood in volcanology, and the behavior of water in the atmosphere is decently understood in meteorology. This study tries to bridge the perceived gap in understanding that lies in the transition from earth to the atmosphere. Since electric charge separations and lightning are prevalent in volcanic eruptions, and since the fundamental role of ice particle collisions in the separation of electric charge and generation of lightning in… CONTINUE READING
