The studies of suprathermal flux at equatorial latitude for low solar activity year of 1996 (from January to December) are reported. The retarding potential analyzer (RPA) data of Indian space research organization Stretched Rohini Satellite Series-C2 (SROSS-C2) are used. The suprathermal electron flux data are chosen in the height range of km. Seasional, latitudinal, and height variations of suprathermal flux having energy range above 30 eV along with comparisons in latitudinal variation of
