The study of the electrical conductivity of air in the lower stratosphere at Poona
A series of measurements of the electrical conductivity of air in the atmosphere up to a height of 20-25 km was made at Poona during 1971- 72 using balloon borne conductivity sondes developed and constructed in the Instrument Research Laboratories of the Meteorological Office at Poona.
During July and September conductivity increases monotonically with height in agreement with theory, while during winter months it shows a sharp fall after about 18 km. The main cause for the differences in conductivity would appear to be the changes in aerosol content in the lower stratosphere due to changes in the circulation patterns.
