Short summary
This investigation analyzes a chain of GPS stations in Africa in order to separate the ionosphere and plasmasphere contributions to the electron content, providing continuous temporal and latitudinal profiles during a single day. Comparisons to other GPS data analyses are also presented, indicating the influence of the plasmasphere on the determination of latitudinal variations and absolute levels, by inducing overestimates of biases. This investigation provides a basis for daily monitoring.
