520    Early studies of electron transport in crossed E and B 
       fields have been reviewed and applied to the case of a 
       positive surface moving in the ionosphere. That work 
       points to the importance of the parameter q = omega p2/
       omega c2 in determining self consistent spacecharge 
       distributions in cross field diodes, and similarly, a 
       crossed field probe plasma sheath in non linear, non 
       adiabatic limits. The application of existing theory to 
       the problem of electron collection by a surface aligned 
       with B indicates that for q > 1/2 the plasma sheath is 
       only slightly perturbed by B, but for q < 1/2 the sheath 
       cannot form without electrons transported along B from the
       ends.
