Es Blog

Weather features have been known to generate turbulence, which in turn produces gravity waves that can propagate upwards to reach the E region, where in turn, they interact with the atmospheric tidal winds and may result in Es (Sporadic E).

Other weather features which may cause weather turbulence are thunderstorms, and rapidly changing upper air patterns. All of these features are plotted at 6-hourly intervals on charts contained within each daily blog.

Sporadic E commentary will be added during the Es season, usually May through August inclusive.
