Electrical charging of skis gliding on snow

Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise 27(1): 136-141
Electrical charging of skis gliding on snow
Ski charging was measured using giant-slalom style skis as gliding capacitors. The voltage measured across the plates was proportional to the charge on the base. While resting on dry snow or suspended in the air, the voltage was slowly reduced by the data logger itself. On wet snow the decay was much faster.
