             abstract = "In this work we investigate the response of the low latitude 
                         ionosphere to Solar Wind High-speed streams (SWHSSs) and 
                         Corotating Interaction Regions (CIRs)-driven recurrent geomagnetic 
                         activity during low and descending phase of solar activity of the 
                         solar cycle 23. Intense magnetic field regions called Corotating 
                         Interaction Regions or CIRs are created by the interaction of fast 
                         streams and slow streams ejected by long duration coronal holes in 
                         Sun. This interaction leads to an increase in the mean 
                         interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) which causes moderate and 
                         recurrent geomagnetic storms when interacts with the Earths 
                         magnetosphere. The ionosphere can be affected by several ways, 
                         such as an increase (or decrease) of the plasma density, 
                         intensification of plasma instabilities during post-sunset or 
                         post-midnight hours and subsequent development of plasma 
                         irregularities/spread-F, as well as occurrence of plasma 
                         scintillation. Auroral heating leads to the development of wave 
                         activity and Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances, or TIDs, which 
                         can affect the middle and the low latitude ionosphere. We analyze 
                         the magnetosphere-thermosphere-ionosphere system variation under 
                         the impact of events of CIRs/HSSs, which occurred during the solar 
                         cycle 23, using multi instrument data and discuss its relevance 
                         for Aeronomic and Space Weather studies.",
