Abstract
If the size of atmospheric plasma is sufficiently large, its resonance radiation can be efficiently absorbed by its atoms and molecules being in the ground and excited states. Such atmospheric plasma is adiabatic. This paper develops the adiabatic theory of plasma recombination in the atmosphere. Dependence of the recombination coefficient on the temperature of electrons is obtained. Singular points of the solution of equations are interpreted as evidence that long- living matastable states of plasma exist. Parameters of such states are presented. Ball lightening and plasma of night ionosphere are considered as examples.
