A study of the effects of the 12 November 1966 total solar eclipse upon the ionosphere has been conducted. The various sources of ionization in the D and E regions have been determined from measurements made during the eclipse period and from analytical models. In addition, the eclipse induced variations in the strength of the ionization source function with altitude during the eclipse has been modeled. Ionospheric measurements of positive ion species and total density, electron density, and O2singlet Delta g density and their variations during the eclipse were placed on a common eclipse-referenced coordinate system and these data were combined with a consistent data base for further studies.
