Eskdalemuir Observatory monthly mean Potential Gradient 1911-1981

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 long series of twentieth century PG measurements exists from Eskdalemuir Observatory in Scotland, which was obtained between 1911 and 1981. This archive provides the mean monthly values of the Eskdalemuir PG derived from hourly measurements.
