Abstract : The book is based on data obtained during the IGY by systematic aircraft soundings of the earth's electric field. More than 2000 soundings were made, and the results of data processing are analyzed in the book. In addition to the detailed information on the initial data presented in tabular form, the book gives, for the first time, pertinent information on the structure of the electric field in 'good' weather, on the distribution of volumetric electric charges and potentials under these conditions. Also included are data on the electric structure of stratified clouds. Thus, the book presents a general picture of the electric structure of the atmosphere on cloudy and clear days. It is intended for specialists in the field of atmospheric, as well as the specialists in all those fields which are concerned with the phenomena of atmospheric electricity. (Author)
