Abstract Measurement of the ordinary and extraordinary blanketing frequencies of several non-blanketing sporadic-E layers indicates that mode coupling does not play a significant role in extending the partial penetration region for ordinary-mode echoes from these layers. In view of a recent theoretical analysis, this suggests that the majority of Es-layers are more than 1 km thick at mid-latitudes. The existence of significant horizontal gradients in the maximum electron densities of non-blanketing layers is also demonstrated.
