The observations and model values were averaged over all geomagnetic conditions and are valid for SSN values in the range 50 to Instrumentation and preliminary results, Dynamics of equatorial F region irregularities from spaced receiver scintillation observations, These figures show the variation of log CkL as a function of magnetic local time counter-clockwise from midnight at the bottom of the plot and distance latitudinal from the auroral electron-precipitation boundary located along the dotted circle in each plot.
On the analysis and interpretation of spaced-receiver measurements of Ionospheric scintillation monitoring and modelling radio waves, Size, shape, orientation, speed, and duration of GPS equatorial anomaly scintillations, Modeling of spaced-receiver scintillation measurements, Background Ionospheric scintillation, which manifests itself as increased noise on a radio signal intensity and phase, is caused by small-scale variations in the ionospheric electron density along a transionospheric propagation path between the transmitter and receiver.
Ionospheric irregularities, scintillation and its effect on systems, The second example, is a similar figure showing a comparison of observed left plot and modeled log CkL right plot at high latitudes.
Phenomenologically, intensity scintillation is very similar to the twinkling of stars due to variations in atmospheric density caused by turbulence. Equatorial ionospheric scintillations and zonal irregularity drifts observed with closely-spaced GPS receivers in Indonesia, The WBMOD computer model, developed over the past two decades by NWRA with support from the US Government, can be used to calculate estimates of the severity of scintillation effects on a user-specified system and scenario location, date, time, geophysical conditions.
On the variation of radio star and satellite scintillations with zenith angle, The anisotropy of high-latitude nighttime F region irregularities, Optimum detrending of raw GPS data for scintillation measurements at auroral latitudes, Transionospheric simulator for strong scintillation conditions and its use in quantifying scintillation effects for GNSS systems, One of the basic parameters generated by this model is the height-integrated electron-density irregularity strength, denoted CkL, which is a measure of the total "power" in the electron-density irregularities along a vertical path passing through the entire ionosphere.

Effect of scintillations on the correlation of differentfrequency L-band satellite navigation signals on the same transionospheric link, presented at the Scintillation effects are most severe at high latitudes within and poleward of the auroral region and in the equatorial region in the post-sunset to midnight local-time sector.
Effects on systems range from loss of signal in deep fades, which can cause loss of information or even loss of lock on the signal, to loss of coherence in phase-sensitive systems such as deep-space radars due to phase scintillation. On the effects of scintillation on the transionospheric paths of propagation, Results of a 3 year study, Pagina Ionospheric scintillation monitoring and modelling If you are interested in obtaining the model, contact NWRA.
The output can be either the value of these parameters at a user-specified occurrence percentile, or the percent of time that a user-specified threshold of either phase or intensity scintillation would be exceeded.
Fading timescales associated with GPS signals and potential consequences, Of the eight parameters used within the model to characterize the electron-density irregularities, CkL is the most dynamic. Dynamics of high-latitude patches and associated small-scale irregularities, Detailed Description The electron-density irregularities model, EDIM, is a collection of empirical models which describe the geometry, orientation, strength, and motion of the irregularities as a function of location latitude, longitudedate, time of day, solar activity level sunspot number, SSNand geomagnetic activity level planetary K-index, Kp.This paper presents a review of the ionospheric scintillation monitoring and modelling by the European groups involved in COST Several of these groups have organized scintillation.
