Earth’s atmosphere is polarized: the negative charges are concentrated mainly in the lower atmospheric layers and the positive charges – in the upper layers of the atmosphere. It is believed now that the nature of force, which polarizes the atmosphere, is unknown. At same time, our calculations showed that force, which distributes the atmospheric charges, has the electromagnetic nature. Under action this force the positive charges are moved up and negative charges – down. Here we propose our calculations.
