Abstract

Atmospheric space charge at 0.1, 1, and 2m above the ground and the potential gradient have been measured in fair weather on level ground. Very large negative space charge values of up to 2 orders of magnitude larger than the normal daytime positive values have been observed to prevail during night-time when the winds are calm. Changes in the polarity of space charges from positive to negative in the evenings, and from negative to positive in the mornings, are rapid and seem to coincide with the change in sign of the lapse rate at these levels.
