                         to understand the climate system and this can be done by 
                         monitoring the atmospheric electric field worldwide. In this way, 
                         continuous measurements of atmospheric electric field are being 
                         recorded by the Atmospheric electric FIeld Network in South 
                         America (AFINSA). The main objective of this network is to obtain 
                         the daily curve of atmospheric electric field variations under 
                         fair weather conditions for each station, through monthly, 
                         seasonal and annual averages. These curves are called standard 
                         curves. In this paper, we compare and analyze the monthly, 
                         seasonal and annual standard curves for each sensor location. The 
                         results indicate significant similarities and differences between 
                         the annual standard curve and the Carnegie curve. The 
                         similarities, with correlation r \≥ 0.9 for most stations, 
                         are associated with a global representation of the global 
                         electrical circuit and the differences due to local effects, such 
                         as Austausch effect and pollution.",
