Abstract A model of the ionospheric E-region between 90 and 130 km altitude is constructed with normal molecular ions and two species of metal ion with different masses. This paper investigates whether the vertical structure observed in sporadic-E layers can be accounted for by separation of different ion species according to their mass. The result of the investigation is substantially negative. Another mechanism for range spread sporadic-E has signatures that may be sought in observational data.
