Abstract

The behaviour of the normal daytime E-layer over the South Atlantic Anomaly region during 23 days of project ISAAC (29 June to 21 July 1983) has been examined. Enhanced production rates due to precipitated electrons were calculated from the observed data and compared well with the production rates from the mean electron fluxes in the range 0.2–26 keV observed from the satellite Atmosphere Explorer-C during 1973–77, discussed by Gledhill and Hoffman.1 The present study shows that there is evidence of a significant source of extra ionization, in addition to solar ultraviolet and X-radiation, in the South Atlantic Anomaly region.
