Amy ions in a wind would constitute current. But will these ions not recombine in the turbulent wind? Ireallydonnojustguessing :? :oops:

Did not see anything to explain horizontal birkeland currents, taking the form of twisting clouds.


Nick's video was interesting , but it is still vertical charge separation... ;)

I still have to wonder if there is just a wind, which may be electrically induced, phenomenon .... :?
