                         traveling ionospheric disturbances (MSTIDs) were studied using GPS 
                         satellite data-based total electron content mapping, ionograms, 
                         and 630 nm all-sky airglow images observed over the South American 
                         continent during the period of 2014-2015. In many cases, we 
                         observed a close relationship between the inter-bubble distance 
                         and the horizontal wavelength of the MSTIDs. The MSTIDs followed 
                         by EPBs occurred primarily in the afternoon to evening period 
                         under strong tropospheric convective activities (cold fronts 
                         and/or intertropical convergence zones). The close relationship 
                         between EPBs and MSTIDs suggests that MSTIDs could be one of the 
                         seeding sources of EPBs.",
