The annual variation of space charges in the atmosphere in the 0-6000 m layer as well as the characteristics of the variation in the 0-500, 500-3500, and 3500-6000 m layers are investigated. It is shown that the range of the annual variation is very large and may account for a significant part of the annual unitary variation of the atmospheric electric field intensity. An inverse variation of the space charges in the lower and middle layers is also noted. The principal variations of the atmospheric charge are concentrated in the middle layer. Author
