Atmospheric electricity data for El Niño-Southern Oscillation studies

How to cite this Dataset


The global atmospheric electric circuit responds to related internal climate variability such as that from the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. Long series of atmospheric electricity data from the twentieth century are needed for comparison purposes. Here, annual values of Potential Gradient (PG) from Lerwick Observatory, Shetland during 1927-1954 and 1968-1983, and also from Watheroo Observatory, Western Australia during 1924-1934, have been digitised and collated.
