Abstract The experimental results for the phenomenon, revealed from the analysis presented in Part I of this paper, are discussed. It is deduced that "Spread-F" results from a ripple structure in the ionization contours of the F2-layer. Model ionization distributions are proposed, and ray-paths drawn, in an endeavour to explain the various aspects of the types of "Spread-F" classified in Part I. The evidence suggests that the type of spreading observed is determined by, (i) the f{hook}0F2 variation at the time, (ii) the amplitude of the ripples, and (iii) the spacing between the ripples. If the ripple amplitude is small, no spreading will be observed. The ripples appear to be present all the time, and their amplitudes seem to become greater with an increase in F2-layer height.
