Abstract : Studies in conjunction with J. Clynch of the Naval Post Graduate School showed that very severe magnetic storms have affected GPS reception at auroral latitudes. Analysis of auroral data indicates that some receivers ride through high amplitude scintillation. Receiver characteristics are discussed which keep track so that short term fades do not affect lock immediately.
