Abstract:

The E region of the ionosphere roughly 90 to 140 km above the earths surface is normally well-behaved and predictable. At times, narrow layers of ionization known as sporadic E or Es form in this region. These layers, which take different forms in the equatorial, temperate and auroral zones, are interesting both from the scientific and radio propagation standpoints. In the temperate zone sporadic E represents probably the clearest evidence of meteorological influence on the high atmosphere sporadic E also provides startling effects such as unexpectedly transmitting Chicago television programs into the New York area. The Second Seminar on the Cause and Structure of Temperate Latitude Sporadic E was held at Vail, Colorado, from June 19-22, 1968. Author
