Abstract

The main propose of this project is study the thermosphere-ionosphere system in low-latitude and equatorial region during the solar cycle 24. In order to study this research topic will be used 4 ionosondes and the IBGE-GPS network. The objective is study the TIDs velocity and propagation direction. In addition, possible changes in the thermosphere-ionosphere system due to the geomagnetic storms. (AU)
