Delayed response of the global total electron content to solar EUV variations

Christoph Jacobi, Norbert Jakowski, Gerhard Schmidtke, and Thomas N. Woods
Short summary
The ionospheric response to solar extreme ultraviolet variability is shown by simple proxies based on Solar Dynamics Observatory/Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment solar spectra. The daily proxies are compared with global mean total electron content. At time scales of the solar rotation up to about 40 days there is a time lag between EUV and TEC variability of about one day, with a tendency to increase for longer time scales.
