Characteristics of the atmospheric electric field and correlation with CO2 at a rural site in southern Balkans

In the current work, 4 years of atmospheric electric field observations at a rural site near Xanthi, Greece, are presented for 2011–2014. The site is situated in an area with very high radon fluxes

Long-term changes in atmospheric electrical parameters observed at Nagycenk (Hungary) and the UK observatories at Eskdalemuir and Kew

The Nagycenk Geophysical Observatory in Hun- gary (47 38 0 N, 16 43 0 E) has made continuous measure- ments of the vertical atmospheric electric Potential Gradient (PG) since 1962. Global signals

Atmospheric electricity observations at Lerwick Geophysical Observatory

Abstract. Atmospheric electricity measurements were made at Lerwick Observatory, Shetland, between 1925 and 1984. These principally provide a long series of hourly potential gradient (PG)

Revisiting the long-term decreasing trend of atmospheric electric potential gradient measured at Nagycenk, Hungary, Central Europe

Abstract. In 2003, a decreasing trend has been reported in the long-term (1962–2001) fair weather atmospheric electric potential gradient (PG) measured in the Széchenyi István Geophysical Observatory

Toward a Realistic Representation of Global Electric Circuit Generators in Models of Atmospheric Dynamics

The diurnal variation of the global electric circuit (GEC) is simulated using the Weather Research and Forecasting model by estimating contributions of grid columns to the ionospheric potential (IP).

Radioactive fallout and secular effects in atmospheric electricity

Changes in the potential gradient at six observatories in Britain, Japan, and Portugal, are examined over the period 1950 to 1964. The changes follow the same pattern at all six stations. The
