|Title:||Charge transfer process during ice-ice collision within a thundercloud|
De, U K
|Abstract:||Formation of a quasi solid layer (QSL) over the ice substrate at low temperatures due to riming is assumed. A mechanism of charge transfer in ice-ice collision is proposed based on this QSL formalism. The amount (Dq) and sign of charge transfer are supposed to depend on the relative depth of QSL of two colliding bodies. Variations of Dq on various parameters are studied. The estimated order of magnitude of Dq is found to lie between 10-15 C and 10-12 C. The QSL formalism is found to be applicable only below a transition temperature specified by the local conditions and sizes of the particles.|
