AbstractThe International GNSS Service final global maps of Total Electron Content (TEC) from 2000 to the end of 2010 have been analyzed. This period covers the last sunspot cycle, including its highest and lowest ionospheric activity periods, as well as the first year of the current cycle. Global and latitudinal statistics of TEC over this period are derived and presented. Strong correlation between daily international sunspot numbers and daily mean TEC can be seen in the data sets studied.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Total Electron Content (TEC) maps of the ionosphere derived from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) measurements are used for improving single frequency positioning. These maps are among several other data sources that can be used for space weather studies in applications such as space weather nowcasts, forecasts, and empirical modeling. In this study, 11 years of global IGS TEC maps from early 2000 to the end of 2010 have been used for a statistical analysis. This study helps both navigation and space weather users of TEC maps have a clear quantitative insight to the TEC amounts and their variations.
