The research of Earth’s physical fields and their variations is particularly important to establish causes and mechanisms of changes in the environment and in the climate. The results of the analysis of instrumental observation concerning the variations in electric and magnetic fields, as well as acoustic vibrations in the near-surface Earth zone are considered in relation to the variations of meteorological parameters. We used the results of synchronous observations concerning physical fields carried out in the period of 2011–2014 in conductions of Geophysical observatory “Mikhnevo” of Institute of Geosphere Dynamics of Russian Academy of Science (IDG RAS) (Russia, Moscow region, settlement Mikhnevo; 54.959º N, 37.766º E). Synchronism of the variations of mentioned geophysical fields and change in atmospheric parameters has been determined, and for the first time not only synchronous, but advanced manifestations of geomagnetic field perturbations are shown, we introduce a new parameter - “reverse” magnetic tipper, variations of which due to atmospheric disturbances are more strongly marked in comparison with the variations of magnetic tipper.
