A simplified approach is used to obtain analytical expressions for the ionospheric drifts in three dimensions which would result from a spatially uniform and temporally constant magnetospheric dawn-dusk electric field. The resultant vector product E x B convection velocities of F-region heights agree in general character with the few measurements available from Thomson scatter drift experiments carried out during geomagnetically disturbed conditions.
