The NNF is pleased to continue our series of webinars from September 2021.

Thursday September 9th  2021 at 15:00 (Swedish / Norwegian time).


“GNSS and Scintillations in the Ionosphere of the Arctic” presented by Sarah Schultz Beeck, Technical University of Denmark.


Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals are affected by the media of the ionosphere when traversing it. This can cause strong phase scintillation in the Arctic region, however, there is no continuous real-time monitoring of the ionosphere above Greenland at the moment. The thesis investigates possibilities for real time monitoring of the ionosphere above Greenland, based on data from geodetic 1 Hz GNSS stations. This, near real-time monitoring of the ionosphere and its scintillation, can be an advantage for GNSS users, and is a step towards improving the safety of navigation in the Arctic. The novelty of the work is the application of the kriging method as basis for rate of total electron content index (ROTI) maps in the Arctic.
