[1] The vertical and spatial structure of the atmospheric El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal is investigated using radio occultation (RO) data from August 2006 to December 2010. Due to their high vertical resolution and global coverage, RO data are well suited to describe the full 3-dimensional ENSO structure in the troposphere and lower(More)
Key Points: • Extratropical wind fields were derived from GPS radio occultation (RO) data • RO geostrophic and gradient winds well represent actual 3-D wind fields • The monthly mean RO wind fields are, in general, accurate to within 2 m/s (2014), Deriving dynamics from GPS radio occultation: Three-dimensional wind fields for monitoring the climate,(More)
High-resolution measurements from Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) radio occultation (RO) provide atmospheric profiles with independent information on altitude and pressure. This unique property is of crucial advantage when analyzing atmospheric characteristics that require joint knowledge of altitude and pressure or other thermodynamic atmospheric(More)
