GNSS Ionospheric Monitoring and Modelling

Satellite Navigation welcomes submissions to the thematic series on GNSS Ionospheric Monitoring and Modelling.

The rapid development of multi-GNSS constellations (GPS, GLONASS, BDS and Galileo) provides increasing number of ground- and space-based high-quality GNSS observations, which brings new opportunities for the research of ionosphere. On the one hand, the high rate real-time GNSS techniques facilitate the algorithm and methodology development for GNSS-based ionospheric observing, monitoring and modeling on local, regional and global scales. On the other hand, ionospheric observations and modeling results support the application of GNSS techniques in high-accuracy positioning and ionospheric space weather services. This special issue is mainly for the new theory, method and application in real-time GNSS monitoring and modeling, the scope of which includes but is not limited to the following aspects:

  • Global ionospheric model evaluation and analysis of GPS, Galileo and BDS-2/3;
  • Multi-GNSS signal bias handling in ionospheric analysis;
  • Ground- and space-based ionospheric observation data analysis;
  • Real-time ionospheric total electron content modeling and monitoring;
  • Real-time ionospheric electron density modeling and monitoring;
  • Ionospheric corrections in GNSS high accuracy positioning;
  • High rate real-time GNSS technique for ionospheric disturbance detection;
  • Ionospheric scintillation and impacts on GNSS; 
  • GNSS-based ionospheric research for scientific applications.
