Abstract : The report is of a Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy held at Ahmedabad, India, February 3-10, 1969. The subjects covered included the constitution, morphology and behaviour of the upper atmosphere over the equatorial belt, with particular reference to the region between altitudes of 50 and 1000 km. The electrical properties, chemical and photo-chemical processes, optical emissions and their relation to solar and other extra-terrestrial phenomena were included. Extended abstracts, together with diagrams of the new work presented at the meeting have been published as Proceedings of the Symposium in 2 volumes. (Author)
