             abstract = "In this paper we present the capability of a new network of field 
                         mill sensors to monitor the atmospheric electric field at various 
                         locations in South America; we also show some early results. The 
                         main objective of the new network is to obtain the characteristic 
                         Universal Time diurnal curve of the atmospheric electric field in 
                         fair weather, known as the Carnegie curve. The Carnegie curve is 
                         closely related to the current sources flowing in the Global 
                         Atmospheric Electric Circuit so that another goal is the study of 
                         this relationship on various time scales 
                         (transient/monthly/seasonal/annual). Also, by operating this new 
                         network, we may also study departures of the Carnegie curve from 
                         its long term average value related to various solar, geophysical 
                         and atmospheric phenomena such as the solar cycle, solar flares 
                         and energetic charged particles, galactic cosmic rays, seismic 
                         activity and specific meteorological events. We then expect to 
                         have a better understanding of the influence of these phenomena on 
                         the Global Atmospheric Electric Circuit and its time-varying
