Abstract Calculations have been performed of changes in NmF2 due to vertical drifts associated with electric fields in the storm time mid-latitude F-region. Vertical drifts depend on changes of electric field strength and vanish after a short time for steady fields in the daytime F-region because of motion set up in the neutral air. Various forms of electric field variation have been used. It is shown that electrodynamic drifts may be responsible for one type of reported phenomenon but not for the very large increases in NmF2 which are sometimes observed. One result of interest is that that a sinusoidal electric field produces drifts which probably cause a nett increase in NmF2. A 'circuit analogue' method has been developed to estimate the vertical drifts caused by electric fields in the F-region.
