Detection of GNSS Ionospheric Scintillations based on Machine Learning Decision Tree
This paper proposes a methodology for automatic, accurate and early detection of amplitude ionospheric scintillation events, based on machine learning algorithms, applied on big sets of 50 Hz post-correlation data provided by a GNSS receiver. Experimental results on real data show that this approach can considerably improve traditional methods, reaching a detection accuracy of 98%, very close to human-driven manual classification. Moreover, the detection responsiveness is enhanced, enabling early scintillation alerts.
