Solar eclipses and ionospheric theory

  • H. Rishbeth
Article

Abstract

This paper discusses the bearing that eclipse observations have on contemporary theories of the ionospheric E and F regions; in particular, on the determination of production and loss rates, and on the role of diffusion and temperature changes. Various complicating factors that arise are discussed, but the paper is not intended as a comprehensive survey of results obtained.
