Abstract : An improved electric field sensor for measuring the vertical and horizontal electric field of the atmosphere. This is accomplished by providing a superpressure balloon having its surface divided into four isolated quadrants and carrying the electronic package inside the balloon for measuring and transmitting the information and providing a structure on the surface of the balloon to cause it to rotate and therby take a series of measurements of the atmospheric electric gradient.
