  • Assessment of the F2-layer electron density peak inferred from Formosat-3/COSMIC radio occultations over half a Solar Cycle 

    Aragon-Angel, Angela; Limberger, Marco; Hernández Pajares, Manuel; Altadill, David; Dettmering, Denise (2016)
    Conference report

    GNSS radio occultation (RO) measurements have become crucial to provide valuable information on the vertical electron density structure of the Ionosphere. Ionospheric key parameters such as the maximum electron density ...
  • Evaluation of the ionospheric F2 characteristics inferred from radio occultations exploiting the availability of FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC data over half a solar cycle 

    Aragón Ángel, Maria Angeles; Limberger, Marco; Hernández Pajares, Manuel; Altadill, David; Erdogan, Eren; Schmidt, Michael (ION Publications (The Institute of navigation), 2016)
    Conference report

    This contribution presents the assessment, on both the maximum electron density (NmF2) and the corresponding peak height of the F2 layer (hmF2), of the overall performance of such ionospheric key parameters inferred from ...
  • Feasibility of precise navigation in high and low latitude regions under scintillation conditions 

    Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; González Casado, Guillermo; Rovira Garcia, Adrià; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Riba Sagarra, Jaume; Barbosa, José; Blanch Llosa, Estefania; Altadill, David; Orús Pérez, Raul (2018-02-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Scintillation is one of the most challenging problems in Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) navigation. This phenomenon appears when the radio signal passes through ionospheric irregularities. These irregularities ...
  • Improved Abel transform inversion: application to COSMIC/FORMOSAT-3 ionospheric occultations

  • Improved characterization and modeling of equatorial plasma depletions 

    Blanch Llosa, Estefania; Altadill, David; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Barbosa, José; González Casado, Guillermo; Riba Sagarra, Jaume; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; Vázquez Grau, Gregorio; Orús Pérez, Raul (2018-08-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    This manuscript presents a method to identify the occurrence of Equatorial Plasma Bubbles (EPBs) with data gathered from receivers of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). This method adapts a previously existing ...
  • Improved modelling of ionospheric disturbances for remote sensing and navigation 

    Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Barbosa, José; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Blanch Llosa, Estefania; Altadill, David; González Casado, Guillermo; Vázquez Grau, Gregorio; Riba Sagarra, Jaume; Orus-Perez, Raul (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A generic software tool to evaluate the impact of ionospheric disturbances is presented, including low and high latitude physically-based models, and low and high frequency fluctuations. This tool has been developed ...
  • Long-term comparison of the ionospheric F2 layer electron density peak derived from ionosonde data and Formosat-3/COSMIC occultations 

    Limberger, Marco; Hernández Pajares, Manuel; Aragón Àngel, Angela; Altadill, David; Dettmering, Denise (2015-06-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Electron density profiles (EDPs) derived from GNSS radio occultation (RO) measurements provide valuable information on the vertical electron density structure of the ionosphere and, among others, allow the extraction of ...
