Electron and ion temperatures, derived from backscatter spectra, are examined during the current rising phase of solar activity. There is a strong positive correlation between the 10·7 cm-solar radio flux and night-time ion and electron temperatures, the temperature increase being about 3·4° K for each unit increase of 1× 10-22 W/m2 per c/s bandwidth in S̅10.7. Any correlation of the noontime electron temperature, and the noontime ion temperature for heights above 400 km, with the 10·7 cm-solar flux, if present, is masked by the more predominant effect associated with the wide day-to-day electron density variations.
