Solar quiet day ionospheric source current in the West African region

Article English OPEN
Obiekezie, Theresa N.; Okeke, Francisca N.;

The Solar Quiet (Sq) day source current were calculated using the magnetic data obtained from a chain of 10 magnetotelluric stations installed in the African sector during the French participation in the International Equatorial Electrojet Year (IEEY) experiment in Afri... View more
