Human activities on different scales of space and time cause a change in electrical state of the atmosphere or cloud electrification. Ionization and nuclei introduced into the atmosphere by human activities may contribute to such modification. Urbanization, desertification and air pollution, which modify cloud electrification characteristics, can influence the evolution of precipitation and dynamics of clouds.
