Abstract. Geomagnetic storms are one of the space weather events. The radio signals transmitted by modern navigation systems suffer from the effects of storms which can degrade the performance of the whole system. In this study, the performance of BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) B1 frequency standard point positioning in China and its surrounding area during different classes of storms is investigated for the first time. The analysis of the results revealed that BDS B1 frequency standard point positioning accuracy was deteriorated during the storms. The probability of the extrema in the statistics of positioning errors during strong storms is the largest, followed by moderate and weak storms. The positioning accuracy for storms of a similar class is found not to be at the same level. The root mean square error (RMSE) in position for the different classes of storms could be at least tens of centimeters in the East, North and Up directions.

Short summary
In this study, the performance of BDS B1 frequency standard point positioning during different classes of geomagnetic storms is investigated for the first time. The main finding is that the point positioning accuracy was degraded during the storms. The probability of the extrema in the statistics of positioning errors during strong storms is the largest, followed by moderate and weak storms. The positioning accuracy for storms of a similar class is found not to be at the same level.
