Reading -atmospheric electric potential gradient

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


Potential gradient is measured using a JCI Chilworth 131 adverse conditions field meter. It is mounted on a 3m metal pole on the atmospheric observatory, which has a number of metal structures (including 10m tower, fence) within 30m of the senor. Calibration of the field meter alongside a longwire antenna was performed during 2006 to establish the site distortion factor. This correction factor is applied to the raw data to derive the potential gradient at 1m.
