The scope of the special issue is to advance our knowledge of the terrestrial and space weather system using the new satellite mission, FORMOSAT-7/COSMIC-2 mission. With the abundant radio occultation observations of both atmosphere and ionosphere after one year on orbit, new science findings, improvements on the global and regional terrestrial and space weather forecast and nowcast could be reached. The secondary payloads, RF beacon and ionosphere velocity meter (IVM) also provide unique chances of constellation observations of the ionosphere irregularities that could impact the satellite communications.
This special issue will come along with the 5th International Conference on GPS Radio Occultation (ICGPSRO) that scientists utilized the FORMOSAT-7/COSMIC-2 data will present their latest results of the applications.
As FORMOSAT-7/COSMIC-2 continue the success of FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC, we also plan to invite a couple review papers on the achievement of the FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC.
