Short summary
The lunar tide influence on the equatorial electrojet (EEJ) gets intensified around noon, primarily during new and full Moon periods. However, the longitudinal, seasonal and solar cycle variability in the lunar tide’s influence on ionospheric current systems is not well understood yet. In order to investigate this, 17 years (1998–2014) of extensive magnetometer observations at four longitudinal sectors (western American, western and eastern African, and Asian) have been analyzed.
