Abstract : Part II of the 1967 Flagstaff, Arizona Report series deals with the development at the Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory, Fort Monmouth, N. J., of several electrometers for surface use and the analysis of observations obtained from their deployment. These observations were made during June and July 1967 in the Fort Monmouth, N. J. area as well as in the vicinity of Flagstaff, Arizona. The report therefore includes comparisons between surface atmospheric electricity readings taken under differing meteorological conditions at two locations, one at sea level, the other at 7000 feet, and an attempt to relate an index of atmospheric stability to various types of electrometer readings.
