    • GPS scintillation and irregularities at the front of an ionization tongue in the nightside polar ionosphere 

      van der Meeren, Christer; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Moen, Jøran Idar; Romano, Vincenzo (WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2014-10)
      In this paper we study a tongue of ionization (TOI) on 31 October 2011 which stretched across the polar cap from the Canadian dayside sector to Svalbard in the nightside ionosphere. The TOI front arrived over Svalbard ...

    • Mesoscale ionospheric plasma irregularities and scintillation over Svalbard 

      van der Meeren, Christer (The University of Bergen, 2016-10-21)
      This thesis investigates how navigation signals are compromised by ionospheric plasma irregularities in the auroral and polar ionosphere over Svalbard. In 2013, four multiconstellation global navigation satellite system ...

    • Scintillation and irregularities from the nightside part of a Sun-aligned polar cap arc 

      van der Meeren, Christer; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Paxton, Larry J.; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock (American Geophysical Union, 2016-06-18)
      In this paper we study the presence of irregularities and scintillation in relation to the nightside part of a long-lived, Sun-aligned transpolar arc on 15 January 2015. The arc was observed in DMSP UV and particle data ...

    • Scintillation and loss of signal lock from poleward moving auroral forms in the cusp ionosphere 

      Oksavik, Kjellmar; van der Meeren, Christer; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Baddeley, Lisa; Moen, Jøran Idar (Wiley, 2015-10-27)
      We present two examples from the cusp ionosphere over Svalbard, where poleward moving auroral forms (PMAFs) are causing significant phase scintillation in signals from navigation satellites. The data were obtained using a ...

    • Severe and localized GNSS scintillation at the poleward edge of the nightside auroral oval during intense substorm aurora 

      van der Meeren, Christer; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Rietveld, Michael T.; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock (American Geophysical Union, 2015-12)
      In this paper we study how GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo navigation signals are compromised by strong irregularities causing severe phase scintillation (σϕ>1) in the nightside high-latitude ionosphere during a substorm on 3 ...

    • Swarm in situ observations of F region polar cap patches created by cusp precipitation 

      Goodwin, Lindsay; Iserhienrhien, Blessing; Miles, David M.; Patra, Swadesh; van der Meeren, Christer; Buchert, Stephan C.; Burchill, Jonathan; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock; Knudsen, David J.; McWilliams, Kathryn A.; Moen, Jøran Idar (Wiley, 2015-02-26)
      High-resolution in situ measurements from the three Swarm spacecraft, in a string-of-pearls configuration, provide new insights about the combined role of flow channel events and particle impact ionization in creating F ...
