In this paper, the receiver differential code bias (DCB) of BDS (BeiDou Navigation Satellite System) is estimated as the changing parameter within 1 d with epoch-by-epoch estimates. The intraday variability of receiver DCB is analyzed from 30 d of Multi-GNSS Experiment observations. In particular, the intraday stability of receiver DCB for the BDS-3 and BDS-2 observations is compared. The result shows that the intraday stability of BDS-3 receiver DCB is better than that of BDS-2 receiver DCB.

A significant warming in the troposphere and cooling in the stratosphere are found in satellite measurements (2002–2017). The newest ERA5 data are first used for analyzing temperature and ozone trends in the UTLS and show the best quality compared to other reanalyses. According to model simulations, the temperature increase in the troposphere and ozone decrease in the NH stratosphere are mainly connected to a surface warming of the ocean and subsequent changes in atmospheric circulation.

In this paper, we discuss the higher-order ionospheric effects on electron density estimation. We estimate the higher-order ionospheric effect carefully and obtain some conclusions. The results show that the second-order ionospheric effects cannot be ignored in precise ionospheric electron density estimation. The azimuth, the solar activity, and the occultation time and position are the main effect factors of the high-order ionospheric delay which we should consider.

The differential code bias (DCB) is one of main errors for high-precision GNSS TEC estimation and positioning applications. In this paper, daily DCBs of the BeiDou System (BDS) are estimated and investigated from multi-GNSS network observations (2013–2014), which are compared with GPS results. The DCB of BDS satellites is a little less stable than GPS results, especially for GEO satellites. Zero-mean condition effects are not the dominant factor for the higher RMS of BDS satellite DCB.

Ann. Geophys., 38, 889–899,Short summary
Anatolian aurora has been reviewed based on existing catalogs to establish a relationship between the aurora observations and past solar activity. There is no study dealing only with the historical aurora observations recorded in Anatolia and Constantinople. A considerable relationship is revealed between the aurora and past solar activity. High auroral activity around 774/775 and the Medieval grand maximum in the 1100s in Anatolia is quite consistent with the past solar variability.

Atmospheric drag due to mass density distribution, particularly during storm-time, is of great importance for low Earth orbit precise orbit determination, and for the understanding of magnetosphere–ionosphere–thermosphere phenomena. In this paper, we investigate solar cycle, seasonal, and hemispheric asymmetry dependencies of thermospheric mass density disturbances due to magnetospheric forcing, from 10-year (2003–2013) continuous time series of GRACE estimates.
