Short summary
This study reports on the application of the FY3-C GNSS occultation sounder (GNOS) for assessing the global ionospheric response to magnetic storm events. We use the March 2015 magnetic storm event to demonstrate the reliability of NmF2 data derived from the instrument through comparisons with ground-based ionosonde observations. The analysis demonstrates the reliability of the GNSS radio occultation sounding instrument GNOS aboard the FY3-C satellite and validates its ionosphere products.
