Abstract

Total Electron content is measured using a dual frequency GPS receiver in Lamgung (LMJG) Station located at 84.57° longitude and 28.17° latitude of the year 2015 as it is considered as geo-magnetically active year. In this study, diurnal variation of VTEC has been studied separately for quiet and disturbed days and, for the effective study of the case the PRN wise data of VTEC have been also used. The maximum VTEC is seen from 0700 LT to 1100 LT (LT=UT+5.45). PRN wise VTEC is studied taking the lower bound (LB) and upper bound (UB). The correlation of VTEC with Dst index, Kp index and Solar flux have been studied. Positive correlation has been found in disturbed days with Kp index and solar flux but negative correlation with Dst index. Dst index shows positive correlation in quiet days but Kp index shows negative correlation.
