It is widely accepted that atmospheric electricity is a fundamental discipline of great importance; it is equally true that progress in some parts of this field has been erratic. It has frequently attracted bright young people who have left for “hotter” areas. Specifically, it supplied much of the talent in cosmic ray physics, and, more recently, the field was decimated by the literally greener pastures in space science. Still, there remains a hard core of serious workers who are convinced of the ultimate scientific importance of their field including relevance to other areas (meteorology, space science, and possible relationships between them).
