Various procedures used for the indirect determination of electron temperature are reviewed with special reference to those making use of riometric measurements. It is shown that a riometer can be very usefully employed to estimate the electron temperature around the F2 peak for ionospheric conditions when f0F2 is more than 6 MHz. When f0F2 is very low, it is rather difficult to measure the electron temperature by this technique. While discussing the practical utility of the riometric technique to determine the electron temperature by an easily applicable method, a more practical procedure is outlined to separate the D- and E-region component from the total absorption.
