Lerwick Observatory monthly mean Potential Gradient 1925-1984

How to cite this Dataset

Description

Measurements of atmospheric electricity, specifically the Potential Gradient (PG), are relatively rare but have occasionally been made at some sites, such as meteorological or geomagnetic observatories. A valuable series of measurements were made in the UK at Lerwick Observatory, Shetland, between 1925 and 1984. In this archive, mean monthly values of the Lerwick PG derived from the hourly measurements during this period are made available digitally.
