Electrostatics and in situ sampling of volcanic plumes

Abstract:

The spectacular lightning displays that can sometimes be seen during volcanic eruptions demonstrate that the emitted plumes readily become electrically charged, but the relationships between volcanic parameters, meteorological conditions, and lightning type and rate are not well understood. The variability and range of physical processes involved, and difficulties of in situ measurements – here defined as those made in and near the plume – are the major reasons for this uncertainty. Lightning...
