Abstract

Abstract Low and mid-latitude lower E-region electron temperature profiles which were obtained by means of an in situ probe were collected. Profiles which are discussed here cover the heights of 90–120 km and measurement reliability at these heights is discussed mainly in terms of electrode contamination and aerodynamical heating. Although measurement errors might exist in some of the electron temperature profiles, it is conclusively described that daytime electron temperature is very often much higher than the possible neutral temperature and T e ≈ T n is rarely seen.
