Propagation media may significantly affect the accuracy of meteorological profiles produced in experiments with the GPS/GLONASS global satellite systems. Atmospheric structures may be "shaded" by ionospheric ones, and false perturbations may arise on the profiles. Nonuniform ionospheric structures, such as sporadic formations, may cause temperature profile errors of 1 K or greater at 10-35 km.
