Abstract: Simultaneous Faraday rotation records obtained at Delhi from two geostationary satellites have been used to study the characteristic variations and the spatial correlation of ionospheric electron content (lEC) at the two subionospheric locations. Results indicate that the IEC measured at the location close to the crest of the anomaly with the help of the satellite at low elevation angle is constantly higher compared to that obtained away from the anomaly crest with the satellite at higher elevation angle. The responses of lEC to increased geomagnetic activity at the two locations separated by a horizontal distance of 900 km are not identical. It has also been observed that correlation between the two sets of IEC is a function of local time and the correlation distance is shorter than at midlatitudes.
