A study is made of the plasma associated with an electrical discharge in a point-plane configuration. Spectral methods are used to measure the concentration and temperature of the electrons. Characteristic discharge regions are distinguished. The plasma parameters found are used together with the method of modified diffusion approximation to obtain estimates which make it possible to distinguish the main channels in which excited and charged particles appear and disappear in the discharge column.
