Abstract : The low latitude ionosphere has a special character of its own owing to a strong control of geomagnetic field over the topside ionosphere. In order to explore the extent of this control, studies on total electron content and irregularities of electron concentration in the ionosphere were carried out at Haringhata Field Station (22 degree 58 minutes N, 88 degrees 30 minutes E). The investigation on electron content were mainly oriented towards the determination of its latitude variation under varying geomagnetic conditions while those on the irregularities sought to obtain their axial ratio and spatial distribution.
