I understand how the electromagnetic effects flow up in a high pressure cell and downward in a low. And Hadley cells and all that.
1) Are we talking about 'instant' electromagnetic coupling, aero coupling, or static charges building on the anvil of a supercell?
2) Any change in the magnitude of geomagnetic lines of flux would be telegraphed instantaneously, as this is a 'field'.
3) Atmospheric 'coupling' would have to do with diurnal solar-driven, and land/sea infrared emission-driven, convective aerodynamic mixing between the land/ sea-surface and top of the stratosphere.
4) Electrostatic charges / lightning, are a function of atmospheric friction/ ionization, in the upper atmosphere.
