                         sporadic E-layers, Esb, using a modified version of a theoretical 
                         model for the E region (MIRE) for a Brazilian region: Cachoeira 
                         Paulista, a low latitude station. MIRE computes the densities of 
                         the metallic ions (Fe+ and Mg+) and of the main molecular ions 
                         (NO+, O2 +, N2 +) by solving the continuity and momentum equations 
                         for each one of them. Additionally, this model includes the 
                         physics of Es layer development driven by tidal winds. In this 
                         study, we extend MIRE adding a novel neutral wind model derived 
                         from the all-sky meteor radar measurements, which provides more 
                         trustworthy results related to the Es layer formation in the 
                         Brazilian sector. Afterwards, this new model is validated 
                         comparing the computed electron density for the Es layer with the 
                         electron density obtained using the blanketing frequency parameter 
                         (fbEs) deduced from ionograms in the analyzed region. The results 
                         show that the values computed by the extended MIRE are in good 
                         agreement with the observational data for the Es layers formed by 
                         the wind shear mechanism. Therefore, the extended MIRE presented 
                         in this work is the only available model that allows simulating 
                         Esb layers with a much higher confidence level for the 
                         low-latitude in the Brazilian sector.",
