Abstract : From the data obtained at the Observatory del Ebro, Tortosa from the 40 and 41 MHz transmission of the Satellite Explorer 22 (AE-B, S66) the daily and seasonal variation of the total electron content are studied for the period November 1964-March 1968. With the help of the vertical ionospheric soundings of the same Observatory, the slab-thickness parameter has been deduced and its variation studied for the same period. The results are compared with those of other authors, and found in good agreement with them. Only the winter anomaly in the total electron content has not been found at Tortsoa in this period.
