At high latitudes, data sets were used from a large number of stations of the International GPS Service for Geodynamics. In Europe - Ny Alesund, Tromso, Kiruna and Onsala. In North America - Yellowknife, Fairbanks, Algonquit, St. Johns. These data sets were used to determine if one could forecast when scintillations would be present during magnetically quiet periods and during storm periods. It was found in a study of the magnetic storm of November 3-4, 1993 that both intensity and occurrence of the irregularities increased at the auroral site of Yellowknife during the storm. Later in the storm the lower latitude station of Algonquin developed irregularities as the irregularity oval expanded. Other storms will be studied to determine the rate of expansion of the irregularity oval.
