Summary
Abstract: An electrostatic field mill, operated by the University of Auckand Physics Department was installed at Vanda Station and monitored electrical fields during storms throughout the year over several seasons. A phenomenon was recorded in April 1970 and considered at the time to be caused by blowing snow. The sensitivity of the mill was such that it had a full scale chart deflection of 800 volts per ...
