Paper Abstract

The main purpose of this investigation was to estimate the influence of local natural condition on behavior of electric field of the atmosphere. Observations were conducted nearby Listvyanka settlement at a south-west coast of the Lake Baikal at three sites with different natural conditions and with minimal anthropogenic influence. The main permanent observation site was organized at the territory of Baikal Astrophysical observatory (BAO) - at one of coastal hills about 220 meters above lake level. Temporally measurements were conducted (synchrony with the main site): in September - inside the narrow and deep stream valley, at the distance about 2 km from the main observation site; in March - at the lake ice, at the distance 5 km from the shore. Observations at the main site were conducted also at two levels: near ground surface and at the top of solar telescope tower (26 meters above the ground).
