Abstract
Absorption coinciding with the sudden commencement of geomagnetic storms has been studied for 71 SC events from the data recorded at 25 riometer stations at or near the auroral zone. The greatest absorption was registered near the auroral zone. The greatest absorption was registered near the cnetral line of the auroral zone. The effect was observed simultaneously on the day and on the night side of the earth. This type of absorption was earlier found to be associated with bremsstrahlung X rays created by electrons entering the lower ionosphere. The source of these electrons has not been definitely established.
