Short summary
In this work, we use the Disturbance Ionosphere indeX (DIX) to study equatorial plasma bubble (EPB) events over the Brazilian equatorial and low latitudes. Our results showed that the DIX detected EPB disturbances in terms of their intensity and occurrence times. Therefore, these responses agreed with the ionosphere behavior before, during, and after the studied EPBs. Finally, these disturbances tended to be higher (lower) in high (low) solar activity.
