Kp and its related indices (ap, Ap, Cp) are widely used in ionospheric and magnetospheric studies and are generally recognized as indices measuring worldwide geomagnetic activity.

Figure 3 represents the variation of monthly mean foF2 with each of the solar activity indices, during all the months of solar cycle From the Figure 3 we find that there is a synchronously variation between foF2 and the solar activity indices.

A programmable search module could be established with solar, geomagnetic and ionospheric indices as input reproducing the relevant ionospheric behaviour for a disturbancedapted IRI.

Monitoring average nighttime VLF measurements shows high variability that could be related to solar or geomagnetic activity.

Thus, we aim to identify the periodicities that appear in the VLF measurements associated with changes in Lyman-α flux, solar wind velocity, and AE index. effect of various sources of geomagnetic activity.

12 Geomagnetic indices The strength of geomagnetic disturbances is often described using various indices. Indices are numbers that characterize the level of magnetic disturbances during a certain time interval (i.e., 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month, etc.) Indices are derived from the continuous measurements of geomagnetic observatories (e.g., NUR).

INTRODUCTION As mankind has become increasingly dependent on technology, understanding of the effects of the Space Physics phenomena on human technology, termed Space Weather, has become increasingly necessary (Jakowsky et al., ). We employ annually averaged solar and geomagnetic activity indices for the period – to analyze the relationship between different measures of solar activity as well as the relationship between solar activity and various aspects of geomagnetic activity.

In particular, to quantify the solar activity we use the sunspot number R s, group sunspot Cited by: 4.

However, both the measurements and values forecast of solar indices W or F give only one value per day (compared with, for example, geomagnetic activity, where 8 K indices are measured per day). Because of this, there are significant errors in the evaluation of the ionospheric conditions at short-term by: 4.

The approach is based on the determination of the dependence of current values of ionospheric parameters on indices of solar and geomagnetic activity.

The scheme is illustrated by an example involving the correction of the F2-layer critical : N. Dvinskikh, N. Polekh. The impact of solar phenomena and associated geomagnetic, magnetospheric and ionospheric activity on the near-Earth space environment is a central topic in geophysics.

Global activity indices, such as the geomagnetic activity index Kp and the disturbance storm time index Dst, are useful for a wide customer base as well as for indicators of how well the model is.In the section below, the most important solar-terrestrial parameters are explained.

For a detailed description of geomagnetic indices, we recommend the book published in under the title of Derivation, Meaning, and Use of Geomagnetic Indices by P. N. Mayaud (American Geophysical Union, Geophysical Monograph 22).Three-hour indices discriminate conservatively between true magnetic field perturbations and the quiet-day variations produced by ionospheric currents.

K indices range in 28 steps from 0 (quiet) to 9 (greatly disturbed) with fractional parts expressed in thirds of a unit.
