Abstract
The Abel inversion method is the classic approach to retrieve electron density profiles from radio occultation measurements, assuming that the electron density is only dependent upon height. In the early 2000s, the total electron content (TEC)-aided inversion method was introduced, where horizontal gradients in the electron density distribution are taken into account by using information from an external model of total electron content (TEC). We show how the quality of the chosen external ionosp...
