Ionospheric scintillation is the term given to irregularities in the ionosphere caused by so-called “space weather”. Key sources of ionospheric scintillation include solar winds and magnetic storms. Historically, the level of scintillation has been seen to follow the 11-year solar cycle and peak at the time of maximum sunspot activity. Therefore the next peak is due in 2012. Scintillation occurs most frequently at tropical latitudes at night. It occurs less frequently at high latitu...
