Abstract : Reports of the occurrence of ionospheric sporadic E clouds from radio amateurs operating on a frequency near fifty megahertz are analyzed on a synoptic scale and compared with the occurrences of thunderstorms and of jet streams. A mechanism is suggested for the observed interrelation between Es and thunderstorms. No definite conclusion is drawn concerning the possible relationship between Es and jet streams. (Author)
