We report two comments affecting the paper “Curto JJ, Juan JM & Timoté CC, 2019. Confirming geomagnetic Sfe by means of a solar flare detector based on GNSS. J Space Weather Space Clim 9: A42. https://doi.org/10.1051/swsc/2019040”: The first comment is the reporting of two mistakes which distorts the central model used for the measurement and detection of solar flares with GNSS, that might affect as well the most part of results and discussions contained in the paper. And the second comment is the clarification about the authors’ claim of presenting the first work of using the electron content enhancement estimation at the subsolar point for characterizing solar flares with GNSS data, which is not accurate due to the existence of such previous definition and usage.
Key words: Solar flares / Ionospheric electron content / Global Navigation Satellite Systems
