Short summary
This study developed a model of total electron content (TEC) over the African region. The TEC data were derived from radio occultation measurements done by the Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere, and Climate (COSMIC) satellites. Data during geomagnetically quiet time for the years 2008–2011 and 2013–2017 were binned according to local time, seasons, solar flux level, geographic longitude, and dip latitude. Cubic B splines were used to fit the data for the model.
