|Abstract:||Incoherent scatter radar measurements of electron temperature (Te) and electron concentration (Ne) at Millstone Hill (lat.. 42.6°N. long.. 71.5°W) are analyzed for the period 1968-74 (which covers a small part of rising and a major part of declining phase of sunspot cycle 20) to look for solar activity dependence of Te in the F2-region of the ionosphere. As Ne is the major controlling parameter for the F2-region Te electron temperatures for constant values of Ne are examined for the period under study. It is observed that there is significant dependence of F2-region Te on solar activity both during the rising and the declining phase of the solar cycle.|
