Scientific

On the ground surface, there is vertical atmospheric electric field. The intensity reaches 100 V/m. If you stand on the ground (picture A), equivalent electric potential immediately changes because you are much more conductive than atmospheric air. Therefore, it is hard to measure true atmospheric electric field.
