Ramsay, M.W. (1959) The relation between precipitation current, potential gradient, and rate of precipitation. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.
An account is given of the measurement of total air earth current density under conditions of nimbo-stratus precipitation. The appartus used was that developed by Adamson (1955) employing an exposed collecting surface with compensation for displacement currents. Simultaneous measurements of the potential gradient F and the rate of rainfall were carried out and an attempt made to correlate the current density with the variation of F and r, with particular reference to the results of Chalmers (1956) who established the empirical relationship I m (F-0) where a and c are positive constants.
