Many recent measurements of photochemical rate constants and atmospheric ion composition have changed our understanding of D-region sunrise processes. In this paper several new sunrise mechanisms are suggested in the light of the recent data. It is concluded that very stable hydrated negative ions will probably be converted by chemical reaction at sunrise into less stable hydrates which can be photodetached.
