Here we present datasets provided by a SCINDA GNSS receiver installed in Lisbon airport area from November of 2014 to July of 2019. The installed equipment is a NovAtel EURO4 with a JAVAD Choke-Ring antenna. The data are in the archived format and include the general messages on quality of records (*.msg), random number generator files (*.rng), raw observables as the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratios, pseudoranges and phases (*.obs), receiver position information (*.psn), ionosphere scintillations monitor (*.ism) and ionospheric parameters: total electron content, TEC, rate of change of TEC, ROTI, and the scintillation index S4 (*.scn). The presented data cover the full 2015 year. The raw data are of 1-minute resolution and available for each of receiver-satellite pairs. The processing and the analysis of the ionosphere scintillation datasets can be done using a dedicated "SCINDA-Iono" toolbox for MATLAB developed by T. Barlyaeva (2019) and available online via MathWorks File Exchange system. The toolbox allows to calculate 1-hour means for ionospheric parameters both for each of available receiver-satellite pairs and averaged over all available satellites during the analyzed hour. Here we present also the processed data for the following months in 2015: March, June, October, and December. The months were selected as containing most significant geomagnetic events of 2015. The 1-hour means for other months can be obtained from the raw data using, e.g. the aforementioned toolbox. The provided datasets can be of interest for the GNSS and ionosphere scientific communities.
