Abstract : A wide range of field and laboratory investigations is described. They include studies of the formation and detection of ice crystals, the effects of charge and electric fields on fog, the electrical properties of lake storms and tornadoes, the global electrical budget, the generation and significance of giant particles in the atmosphere, and the development and use of a large vertical wind tunnel. These studies are primarily experimental. Theoretical work has been done on the interaction of gravity waves with warm fronts, and on the dynamic stability of the tornado funnel. (Author)
