This "initial recombination" is greatest towards the end of the path of the ray where the ionisation is a maximum.
Comment: My biggest concern regarding ionisation of the IGM is the idea of "cold plasma" much of it is really only partially ionised.
The corona is the manifestation of this field, as evidence by its extreme ionisation and temperature.
Without so much proton bombardment, the reduced ionisation means fewer free electrons are produced that can rove about vandalising communications signals.
After extraction and purification, the protein is sequenced with matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS).
In addition to the primary protons, the secondary electrons produced in ionisation may have enough energy to further ionise and dissociate atmospheric gases.
The ion concentrations are closely tied to the ionisation level, and after a reduction in proton forcing the fast recombination with free electrons results in a quick return to quiet-time levels.
The ionisation caused by solar particle precipitation can far exceed the normal geomagnetically quiet-time sources in the middle atmosphere, As a result the ion concentrations are significantly elevated at altitudes below about 100 km and the ion composition may also change.
It was like a laser light, caused by the ionisation of the air.
Uggerhàƒⷪ at Danish National Space Centre, using one 8 cubic meter reaction chamber, has indeed confirmed that the ionisation of the atmosphere inflict on the formation of aerosols, and thereby clouds.
