Radio climatology models of the ionosphere: status and way forward. The objective of this project is to use the experimental observations of the ionosphere collected in the past years to assess the performance of climatological ionosphere models, with the focus on scintillation models. This analysis is to be performed in order to evaluate the ability of these climatological models to properly support future ESA needs, to identify weak areas if any, to propose recommendations for improvements and to implement these improvements whenever possible in existing models. An additional objective is to provide feedback on the adequacy of future Earth Observation products to contribute to a better understanding and modeling of the ionosphere
