Abstract : The first four harmonics of the diurnal lunar variation and the semimonthly lunar tide of two years TEC data at Ebro and at Hamilton, and for some other ionospheric parameters at Ebro have been obtained. For the parameters with sufficient number of data, the lunar harmonics for the different seasons have also been obtained. The relation between the diurnal lunar variation of the height and the electron density of the maximum of the F2 layer seems to be solar dependent with a change of the phase at about 1000 SLT. The diurnal solar variation of the semimonthly lunar tide is also discussed. (Author)
