Total Electron Content

The total electron content (TEC) is a common parameter to illustrate the current state and forecast of the ionosphere. It is defined as the integral of the electron density along the ray path between satellite and receiver. Thus, TEC provides the number of electrons per square meter. It can be used to estimate and improve the accuracy and reliability of impacted communication and navigation systems.
