E Region synonyms
A dense layer of ions in the E region of the ionosphere at an altitude of c. 100 km (c. 62 mi), capable of reflecting shortwave radio waves
The region of the atmosphere that lies in the upper mesosphere, extending from about 70 to 90 km (43 to 56 mi) above the Earth. The D region is responsible for the daytime absorption of high-frequency radio signals; at night, oxygen ions recombine with free electrons and form oxygen molecules that are transparent to such signals, which bounce off of the E region and back to Earth.
The highest region of the ionosphere, consisting of free electrons generated by the ionizing effect of solar radiation. This region is subdivided into two layers, designated the F1 layer, and the F2 layer. The F1 layer extends from about 150 km (93 mi) to 240 km (149 mi) above the surface of the Earth and exists only during sunlight hours. At night it merges into the F2 layer. The F2 layer extends from about 240 km (149 mi) to 400 km (248 mi). The density of free electrons in this layer is much higher than it is in the F1 layer. It is the main reflecting layer for high frequency communications, both during sunlight hours and during the night.
