Abstract : In this report we assess a number of physical and chemicl processes for their effect on striation structuring, with particular emphasis on times after a nuclear event, but prior to the re-establishment of the undisturbed ambient magnetic field. The results for charge exchange and impact ionization are particularly striking in that slow electron structure in the 100-200 km altitude range, due to fast ions created at an altitude of 400 km, exhibits a sharp decay with decreasing wavelength, at inverse wavenumbers below 20 kilometers.
