Short summary
The occurrence of sporadic E (Es) layers has been a hot scientific topic for a long time. GNSS (global navigation satellite system)-based radio occultation (RO) has proven to be a powerful technique for detecting the global Es layers. In this paper, we show some examples of multiple Es layers occurring in one RO event and the occurrence of Es in a broad region during a certain time interval. The results are then evaluated by independent observations such as lidar and ionosondes.
