Thunderstorm





The emergence of storm has to do with the soaring and descending air currents in large rain clouds and the electric tension of earth and atmosphere. Concentrations of electric charges may arise by the strong air currents. In storm clouds the strong soaring warm air and descending cold air flow closely past each other with maximum speeds of 100 kilometer per hour. With these currents, electrically charged particles are being carried whereby the cloud is being charged like a huge capacitor. Thereby discharges are possible between the cloud and other clouds or between the cloud and the earth, which leads to lightning and thunder.
