Meteorologico-Electric Phenomena and Electrohydrodynamics (EHD) or Electromagnetohydrodynamics (EMHD)

  • H. Kikuchi

Abstract

The meteorologico-electric environment may be considered to consist of dusty plasmas with noise and chaos, containing charged dust grains, for the meteorological phenomena involving or accompanying electric discharge, ionization or electrification such as thunderstorms, planetary rings, cometary tails and dark interstellar clouds. This paper is intended, first of all, to provide several basic concepts: electric reconnection; ponderomotive force; critical ionization velocity; self-organization; dynamic chaos and so on, useful for understanding the phenomena physically, and then to furnish a new set of electrohydrodynamic (EHD) and/or electromagnetohydrodynamic (EMHD) equations with additional terms of ponderomotive forces, incorporating Maxwell’s equations or Poisson’s equation, relevant for the meteorologico-electric phenomena.
