In fact, nighttime E-region ionosphere in the temperate zone isdominated by these layers. Although it is generally understood that these ionization layers areformed by the windshear of tidal winds, their variability has not been studied in any detail. We use   the data collected by the Arecibo ISR over nearly two solar cycles to examine the morphology ofthe ion layers. We present diurnal, seasonal and solar cycle variation of the peak density, altitude,layer width and E-region column abundance. In addition, we compare the ion layer characteristicswith those of the metallic atom layers, particularly potassium and sodium, observed by co-locatedlidars. Cite as:   Eos Trans.
