Measurements of the atmospheric electric conductivity and small, intermediate, and large ion concentrations made at four locations over the Arabian Sea onboard ORV Sagarkanya in the premonsoon and monsoon seasons during the Arabian Sea Monsoon Experiment in 2002-2003 are reported. Observations show a threefold increase in the daily average value of conductivity over a period of $10 days preceding the onset of southwest monsoon. The enhanced values of conductivity are accompanied with a higher concentratio…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
