A comprehensive set of charge exchange and ion-molecule reactions are discussed. These reactions involve excited state state species and arise in the disturbed E and F regions of the ionosphere. The reaction rates for most of these reactions are not known. However, some of them may play an important role in emission and deionization processes. These processes, therefore, can have important consequences for communications. author
