Abstract: The significant effect of the high-energy charged particles, entering the earth’s environment from interplanetary space, on the space and terrestrial weather is well known. Solar flares emit electron particles. These electrons interact with Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere causing weather, geophysical and behavioural changes. These charged particles from the sun affect Earth’s magnetic field and increase atmospheric nucleation which then affects cloud formation and thus the weather. Keeping this in view, a study has been undertaken to examine the changes in rainwater associated with the high energy charged particles entering the earth’s environment from interplanetary space. It is observed from the analysis that an increase in proton and electron fluences is followed by an increase in electrical conductivity and decrease in pH of rainwater over Pune.
