Computation of Precipitable Water Vapour Using GPS and Sparse Publicity Available Meteorological Data : Case Studies in New Zealand and Europe

Hochschule Neubrandenburg, 2014

Abstract: Precipitable Water Vapour (PWV) data is used in meteorology studies and is not always easy to obtain. This project combines GPS derived Zenith Tropospheric Delay (ZTD) together with meteorological data for the estimation of PWV. Stations with both, meteorological and GPS on-site measurements available are used to produce reference data (verification stations). The work shows a possible way to take existing GPS stations without on-site meteorological observations for the PWV estimation by interpolating temperature and pressure measurements from sparse, publicity available, meteorological sites.
