  • Galileo Ionospheric Correction Algorithm: An Optimization Study of NeQuick-G Galileo Ionospheric correction algorithm: An optimization study of NeQuick-G 

    Aragón Ángel, Maria Angeles; Zürn, M.; Rovira Garcia, Adrià (2019-11-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    At present most low-cost GNSS receivers operate one frequency in the L band. For themone of the largest error contributions is the delay of radio signals in the Ionosphere. NeQuick-Gisthe official ionospheric correction ...
  • Assessing the quality of ionospheric models through GNSS positioning error: methodology and results 

    Rovira Garcia, Adrià; Ibáñez Segura, Deimos; Orús Pérez, Raul; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; González Casado, Guillermo (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Single-frequency users of the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) must correct for the ionospheric delay. These corrections are available from global ionospheric models (GIMs). Therefore, the accuracy of the GIM is ...
  • Confirming geomagnetic Sfe by means of a solar flare detector based on GNSS 

    Curto Subirats, Juan Jose; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Timote Bejarano, Cristhian Camilo (2019-11-28)
    Article
    Open Access
    Solar Flares (SF) refer to sudden increases of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun lasting from minutes to hours. Irradiance in the Extremely Ultra-Violet (EUV) or X band is enhanced and it can produce a sudden ...
  • Improvement of the ionospheric radio occultation retrievals by means of accurate global ionospheric maps 

    Shao, Yixie; González Casado, Guillermo; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; Rovira Garcia, Adrià (2018-12-22)
    Article
    Restricted access - author's decision
    The Abel inversion method is the classic approach to retrieve electron density profiles from radio occultation measurements, assuming that the electron density is only dependent upon height. In the early 2000s, the total ...
  • Revisit the calibration errors on experimental slant total electron content (TEC) determined with GPS 

    Nie, Wenfeng; Xu, Tianhe; Rovira Garcia, Adrià; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; González Casado, Guillermo; Chen, Wu; Xu, Guochang (2018-06-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    The calibration errors on experimental slant total electron content (TEC) determined with global positioning system (GPS) observations is revisited. Instead of the analysis of the calibration errors on the carrier phase ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • The impacts of the ionospheric observable and mathematical model on the Global Ionosphere Model 

    Nie, Wenfeng; Xu, Tianhe; Rovira Garcia, Adrià; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; González Casado, Guillermo; Chen, Wu; Xu, Guochang (2018-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A high-accuracy Global Ionosphere Model (GIM) is significant for precise positioning and navigating with the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), as well as space weather applications. To obtain a precise GIM, it is ...
  • AATR an ionospheric activity indicator specifically based on GNSS measurements 

    Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Sanz Subirana, Jaume; Rovira Garcia, Adrià; González Casado, Guillermo; Ibáñez Segura, Deimos; Orús Pérez, Raul (2018-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work reviews an ionospheric activity indicator useful for identifying disturbed periods affecting the performance of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). This index is based in the Along Arc TEC Rate (AATR) and ...
  • GPS differential code biases determination: methodology and analysis 

    Sanz Subirana, Jaume; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; Rovira Garcia, Adrià; González Casado, Guillermo (2017-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    We address two main problems related to the receiver and satellite differential code biases (DCBs) determination. The first issue concerns the drifts and jumps experienced by the DCB determinations of the International ...
  • Eccentricity samples: implications on the potential and the velocity distribution 

    Cubarsí Morera, Rafael; Stojanovic, Milan; Ninkovic, Slobodan (2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    Planar and vertical epicycle frequencies and local angular velocity are related to the derivatives up to the second order of the local potential and can be used to test the shape of the potential from stellar disc samples. ...
  • Intrinsic functional and architectonic heterogeneity of tumor-targeted protein nanoparticles 

    Peasarrodona, Mireia; Crosas, Eva; Cubarsí Morera, Rafael; Vazquez, Esther; Villaverde, Antonio; et al., . (2017-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Self-assembling proteins are gaining attention as building blocks for application-tailored nanoscale materials. This is mostly due to the biocompatibility, biodegradability, and functional versatility of peptide chains. ...
