Abstract:

Values of total electron content of the ionosphere, obtained at the Observatorio del Ebro by the Faraday rotation method, have been analyzed to study electron production rates. Daily values of the electron production rate, integrated with respect to height through the ionosphere, were determined at sunrise for the period August 1973-Jul 1974, by a method that makes use of a two components model atmosphere. A Fourier analysis of the results indicates an annual and a semiannual variation of the production rate values. A comparison with results of other authors seems to indicate a latitudinal dependence of the semiannual variation no similar effects was found for the annual variation. Author
