Abstract: Relationship between daily means of H and Y fields with Dst index for stations with in a low latitude belt around the world has been investigated. The H field decreases linearly with decreasing Dst, the slope being less than unity at all stations. But Y field variation with Dst exhibited a longitudinal dependence. The ring current follows the dipole coordinates and not the dip coordinates and hence changes in Y field are related to both dipole declination (ѱ) and dip declination (D) such that ΔYH = sin(ѱ-D), both in sign and magnitude. Good correspondence is seen between ΔYH and sin(ѱ-D) for all stations in the equatorial belt.
