FIGURE 5.7 Ionosphere-induced GPS errors. Ionospheric range delay results from normal signal propagation through the
ionosphere. Scintillations result from severe ionospheric signal scattering. Amplitude fading or signal-to-noise degradation is
caused by solar radio bursts. SOURCE: Paul M. Kintner, Jr., Cornell University, “A Beginner’s Guide to Space Weather and
GPS,” February 21, 2008, available at http://gps.ece.cornell.edu/SpaceWeatherIntro_update_2-20-08_ed.pdf.
