Investigations of link between parameters of global electromagnetic (Schumann) resonance and characteristics of vertical profile of atmospheric conductivity remain an actual problem. We use a rigorous solution of the electrodynamic problem in the spherical Earth-ionosphere cavity by the full wave technique and compare the results with the knee model, as introduced in the literature. The vertical conductivity profile of the atmosphere was constructed by using parameters of this model, and this allowed us to build the rigorous electromagnetic solution, and to compute the energy spectra of the vertical and horizontal electric magnetic fields corresponding to the uniform distribution of the global thunderstorms over the planet. It is shown that the knee model, discussed in the literature, does not match the rigorous full wave solution and the subsequent computations of the power spectra of Schumann resonance.

Keywords: schumann resonance, the conductivity of the atmosphere, the full wave solution, the knee model
