Paper Abstract

In the last decade a special attention has been paid to study of variability of atmospheric electricity parameters. The reason is that the atmospheric electricity can be considered as a connecting link between solar activity variations and climatic characteristics of the troposphere. On the one hand, the atmospheric electricity parameters are affected by heliophysical and meteorological parameters such as intensity of galactic cosmic rays, atmospheric circulation, pressure and temperature, as well as underlying surface conditions. On the other hand, they can influence the atmosphere distribution of charged aerosols and condensation nuclei that act upon water phase state, cloudiness, and thereby, the atmosphere radiation balance. The data of measurement of atmospheric electricity parameters at high-mountain stations are of special interest and significance because these stations are situated above the mixing layer, so this make it possible to obtain a reliable information about the global electric circuit. The results are presented of the measurements and study of the atmospheric electricity parameters such as electric field intensity E and conductivity λ at high-mountain stations (Khulugaisha, 3000 m above S.L., Chasovye Sopki, 2000 m above S.L.), as well as the global and local components of the diurnal variation and their seasonal variations.
