This article explains how charge separation can be created, structured, propagated and maintained in ice. This may be an important factor in explaining how some clouds can gather the energy necessary to generate the electron showers required to cause gamma rays and antimatter formation. It may also explain how clouds may acquire the energy necessary to manifest ball lightning/UFO phenomena.

Respectfully submitted,

you may find this not only pertinent to your interests but enlightening as to the amount of charge good old fashioned falling water can generate.
