An Electric Field Mill in BASE building Koganei Campus

Organized by Gakugei University (Kamogawa laboratory), Lenggoro laboratory has cooperated within the atmospheric electric field multipoint observation network.
It is reported that in Tama area many thunder clouds accompanied by lightning strikes, hail, and “quick” heavy rain are generated. These phenomena are thought to be closely related to the fluctuation of electric field which thunder cloud produces, and the project will clarify the electrical structure of thundercloud by matching with radar observation. The project intensively deploy atmospheric electric field measuring equipment to the area within 5 km radius around Koganei campus. Other placement place candidates include JAXA Tsukuba Space Center, Chofu Aerospace Center, Chofu Aerodrome.
