The equatorial ionosphere is highly dynamic and consequently poses serious threats to communication and ( ) Sq H exhibit a general dependence on solar activity at Addis Ababa, closer to the dip equator, rather than at Nairobi during the ascending phase of the daytime. This observation suggests that the EEJ changes linearly with change in solar activity, thus streamlining the variations in TEC, through × E B drifts, and ( ) Sq H by intensifying the eastward equatorial electric field.
