Abstract: Satellite tracking systems suffer range, range rate and angular refraction errors due to the electrons in the earth's ionosphere. To a first order accuracy these effects may be corrected if the total electron content along the path from the satellite to the observing station is known. In this paper a numerical representation of seasonal average behaviour of the total electron content parameter, obtained from actual data taken at both, solar minimum and solar maximum, is given. The data used in this numerical representation cover the important latitude range in the equatorial and near equatorial latitudes where the world's greatest values of total electron content are known to occur.
