Abstract

The global static electric field in the global atmospheric electric circuit resulting from mesospheric sprite discharges is inferred from a coupled model for the global static and dynamic electric fields derived from Maxwell's equations. It is found that the global atmospheric electric field from individual sprites is less than or similar to 44 mV/m, which can be measured with conventional ULF/ELF radio wave antennas at frequencies less than or similar to 4 Hz.
