IONOSPHERIC ERROR

The total systematic and random error resulting from the reception of a navigation signal after ionospheric reflections. It may be due to variations in transmission paths, non-uniform height of the ionosphere, or non-uniform propagation within the iono- sphere. Also called IONOSPHERIC-PATH ERROR, SKYWAVE ERROR.
