Abstract : It is pointed out that in some cases sudden ionospheric disturbances (SID's) are observed at times when there are no flares on the solar disk. During 1959 there were 18 such cases. It is shown that the detected SID's were due to flares originating behind the limb of the solar disk. Recordings of the integrated intensity of atmospherics in the long-wave range were used as indicators of the SID. (Author)
