North West Pacific Ocean is one of the most regions has hit by typhoons In 2018 Mangkhut was the 22 nd Tropical Cyclone ( over the North West Pacific Ocean regions ( it was numbered as 1822 In this study, we investigate the highest amplitude ionospheric variations and the atmospheric parameter anomalies during an extremely powerful typhoon in September 2018 that caused extensive damage in Guam, the Philippines, and South China The atmospheric parameters such as Air Intensity, the wind structure’s variation, and the meridional and Zonal wind were retrieved from Honk Kong Observatory and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Physical Sciences Laboratory (NOAA PSL) to analyze their behavior during Mangkhut Besides, total electron content ( were created through Hong Kong SatRef ( and IGS data around the area of Mangkhut typhoon TEC sequences are utilized to analyze the ionospheric response by interquartile range approach ( over the maximum wind speed points after taking the solar terrestrial environment and geomagnetic storm indices into consideration.
