Abstract : The results of a study undertaken to determine the feasibility of employing synoptic mapping to improve ionospheric forecasting capabilities are presented. Using electron density data obtained from 16 ionosonde stations located in North America and Greenland during the time period mid-April through July 1970, the temporal and spatial variability of the ionosphere was assessed.
