On the role of electromagnetic phenomena in some atmospheric processes

S. N. Artekha and A. V. Belyan

Abstract. A crucial part of electromagnetic phenomena in many atmospheric processes is verified by systematized data. The multilayered charged system of clouds represents some dynamically equilibrium structure kept by the ionic and polarization forces. The estimates of acting forces are presented and the necessity of taking into account the plasma-like subsystems' effect on some atmospheric phenomena is demonstrated, including the formation and the maintenance of the structure and characteristics of their movement.
