Abstract : Tomographic images are presented of the spatial distribution of electron density in the sub-auroral ionosphere. The reconstructions have been obtained by inversion of total electron content measurements made at four stations in UK. The images cover the period from early January to mid April 1993 and represent the first set of tomographic reconstructions obtained in monitoring the ionosphere over an extended period. Of particular interest is the spatial development of the main trough in the nighttime ionosphere. The potential of the tomographic method for routine observations of the ionosphere is demonstrated.
