The present book is in continuation of our sincere efforts towards the applications of electron scattering cross sections (Volume-I), in the modeling of various planetary atmospheres. In this backdrop the present book focuses on important applications of our calculated ionization cross sections in various planetary environments. As a case study, electron ionization for N2 and O2 are calculated and employed to compute the ionization mean fee path and ionizing collision frequencies for the incident electrons in the D and E regions of the Earth’s ionosphere. Further in the ionospheres of Mars and Titan, ion production rates (IPR) are calculated, and also shown the diurnal variation in the IPR along with the solar zenith angle for Mars.
