Abstract:

The three components of the electric field have been measured in flights past a series of isolated thunderstorms and electrically-active cumulus clouds. Many of the clouds studied have field patterns that appear similar to those that would be experienced if the cloud were a point charge. If the cloud is assumed to be a point charge in these flights, then the magnitude and polarity of the charge can be calculated. Author
