Atmospheric electrical observatories
Atmospheric electrical observatories
Editor(s): Karen Aplin
This special issue covers the history and development of observatories where long-term data sets of atmospheric electrical measurements were obtained. It is related to the international COST action CA15211 – Atmospheric Electricity Network: coupling with the Earth system, climate and biological systems and the GloCAEM (Global Coordination of Atmospheric Electricity Measurements) project, funded by the UK Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) under grant number NE/N013689/1.
