Abstract The action of neutral air winds and of influx of plasma from outside the F-layer are shown to be important in understanding its observed nighttime behaviour at a lower midlatitude station. On winter nights the problem is to understand why F-layer electron concentrations are as high as they are. On the other hand on summer nights the problem is to understand how the F-layer decays as quickly as it does after large increases in F-layer electron concentrations which are observed to occur near midnight. The use of radio observations from a global network of stations could possibly lead to a model capable of predicting a wider range of ionospheric phenomena than is currently possible.
