Abstract

This program has been initiated to study the atmospheric and meteorological parameters at a high altitude sub Himalayan location (Shillong25.58°N, 91.89°E), Shillong, Meghalaya to understand their interaction and bearing on the local climate. Design and fabrication of the integrated instrumentation for measurement and recording of atmospheric electric potential gradient, point discharge current, solar irradiance and meteorological parameters was implemented. The results obtained indicate satisfactorily the performance of the instrument in fair-weather and disturbed weather conditions.
