Analysis of Magnetic Field Variations Produced by Equatorial Electro-Jets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Equatorial Electrojet (EEJ) is a narrow band of electrons flowing from east to west at daytime at low latitudes. The electron current produces a magnetic field variation that can be measured at different latitudes. In this work, we have used the data analysis in order to quantify the solar and lunar contributions to those variations and study the morphology of the EEJ current.
