Abstract: Data from a very clole network of ground magnetometers operated in Ethiopia (East Africa) within ± 5ᵒ of the dip equator during 1970-71 were used for studying the peculiarities of daily variation and storm effects. It was noticed that daily variation patterns near zero dip have enhanced magnitudes but do not bear a constant proportionality with patterns just outside the electrojet influence. The maxima and minima had different latitude dependences indicating possibly different causes. SSC magnitudes were enhanced near dip equator during daytime but the ratio of enhancement was not proportional to the electrojet strength. The analysis indicates a complex electrojet structure, probably a system of multiple current strips at different altitudes and having different latitude profiles not necessarily centered at the dip equator.
