The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) provides total precipitable water (TPW) data over land and ocean using near-infrared reflectance at a resolution of 1km, which gives it the potential to significantly improve weather forecasts. This study determined the accuracy and biases associated with MODIS TPW data and investigated the impact of its(More)
We investigate the influence of using IGS predicted orbits for near real-time zenith tropospheric delay determination from GPS and implement a new processing strategy that allows the use of predicted orbits with minimal degradation of the ZTD estimates. Our strategy is based on the estimation of the three Keplerian parameters that represent the main error(More)
Real-time high-rate geodetic data have been shown to be useful for rapid earthquake response systems during medium to large events. The 2014 M w 6.1 Napa, California earthquake is important because it provides an opportunity to study an event at the lower threshold of what can be detected with GPS. We show the results of GPS-only earthquake source products(More)
Evansville, Indiana, is one of the closest large urban areas to both the New Madrid Seismic Zone, where large earthquakes occurred in 1811–1812, and the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone, where there is evidence of several large prehistoric earthquakes in the last 14,000 yr. For this reason, Evansville has been targeted as a priority region for urban(More)
