Summary

In regional studies at low latitudes, the distribution function of the source field constitutes part of the problems of induction. An attempt has been made to look for a predominant parameter ν p of the inducing source field at three low latitude stations. It is assumed that the source fields move with local time from east to west. No limitations have been placed on the frequency range and the spatial distribution function of the source field. The events recorded at these stations have been subjected to a critical analysis in order to show the characteristics of the predominant ν p -parameter, and its significance in regional studies.
