The books provides substantial background material, Rapid progress during the last twenty years has created a host of new technologies for studying electrical storms, including lightning mapping systems, new radars, satellite sensors, and new ways of measuring electric field and particle charge.5/5(2).

The Electrical Nature of Storms "Our goal has been to produce a modern, graduate level textbook on the electrical processes of storms.

The level of our treatment is designed for those with a basic understanding of meteorology or physics and provides the tools needed to explore this cross-disciplinary topic.

The book, THE ELECTRICAL NATURE of STORMS, appears oblivious to interpretation of simple evidence that the earth is negatively charged.

(It would be most unlikely for the sun to leave us with a perfect balance, with thermionic emission, solar wind, etc.)Cited by: This book represents their attempt to condense an enormous body of literature on the electrical nature of storms into a single volume textbook, something that has been sorely needed for some time.

In many ways, this is the right book, by the right people, at 5/5(2). Description Rapid progress during the last twenty years has created a host of new technologies for studying electrical storms, including lightning mapping systems, new radars, satellite sensors, and new ways of measuring electric field and particle charge.
