The effect of the ionosphere on astronomical observations below 100 MHz
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 URSI. We derive the expected systematic error induced by the ionosphere on radio astronomical observations at low frequencies. We compare our predictions with data from the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR). We show that the systematic errors on the phases of the instrument can be described as a sum of four effects (clock, ionosphere 1st, 2nd, and 3rd order). We show that the ionosphere corrupts also the recorded data amplitude through scintillations. Finally, we report values of the ionosphere structure function in line with the literature.

(2015)Copyright © Astronomical Society of Australia 2015 We compare first-order (refractive) ionospheric effects seen by the MWA with the ionosphere as inferred from GPS data. The first-order ionosphere manifests itself as a ...
Arora, Balwinder Singh (2012)The precise positioning applications have long been carried out using dual frequency carrier phase and code observables from the Global Positioning System (GPS). The carrier phase observables are very precise in comparison ...
Ionosphere Augmentation for Accelerated Convergence in Precise Point Positioning with Triple-frequency and GPSDeo, Manoj; El-Mowafy, Ahmed (2017)A Precise Point Positioning (PPP) method is presented that uses raw triple-frequency GPS measurements augmented with a regional ionospheric model (RIM) for faster solution convergence. The proposed method has two ...
