GNSS scintillation data - ionospheric scintillation parameters measured by a GPS receiver on the Dutch Antilles

At the islands of Saba and St Eustatius two Septentrio GNSS receivers were installed for seismological monitoring and research. For each GNSS satellite that passes over, the GPS signal that is received is delayed and polarized. These receivers log these parameters in hourly files with estimates of a.o. the total electron content (TEC) and phase shifts (S4) due to ionization by the various types of solar radiation. Each record is characterized by a satellite identification number, a time, and an azimuth and elevation angle.
