Abstract A method is described for measuring the thickness of a sporadic E-layer from records obtained when using a Phase Ionosonde. The method involves the measurement of the phase advance, caused by the presence of a sporadic E-layer, on echoes from the F-region. One example is analysed in detail and it was found that the sporadic E-layer was a sharppeak layer, and its thickness at a plasma frequency equal to 90 per cent of its critical frequency was 5 km. The thickness of the same sporadic E-layer was also measured independently by performing a true-height reduction, by a polynomial method, using the phase of the echoes from the E-region of the ionosphere. The results obtained from the two methods were consistent.
