eSWua: Scintillation Indices and Total Electron Content (TEC) database

Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia

Description

The eSWua (electronic Space Weather upper atmosphere) database contains the near-real time and historical data originated from the instruments of the INGV Ionospheric Monitoring Network, and all the related scientific products developed by the "Upper atmosphere physics and radiopropagation" INGV group. This collection includes the data acquired by the GNSS ionospheric scintillation and TEC Monitor (GISTM) receivers; these particular instruments allow to monitor transient effects such as ionospheric scintillations by sampling the signals of the GNSS constellations in both amplitude and phase, with a frequency of at least 50Hz. The INGV scintillation network has been active since 2003 when the first instrument was installed in Svalbard (Norway). Currently, several permanent observatories placed at different latitudes, from the polar to the equatorial regions, belong to the network.

The download tool assist you in the procedure of accessing the data. USAGE: 1) Choose the collection "GNSS SCINTILLATION" from the horizontal menu below the text. 2) Select the GNSS station. 3) Continue with the guided data selection.
In this page is provided an overview of the near-real time data of the scintillation indices and TEC for each operative station of the network.
In this page it is possible to explore and plot the data (both historical and near-real time) available for each station (including also the no more operative ones), and filtering the results. Multiple plots can be added to the page, allowing the comparison among different stations/time-periods.
The page provide a guide to access the eSWua GNSS data trough the RESTful API (Section: GNSS SCINTILLATION DATA).
