7 In recent years, the global positioning system (GPS) has been exploited via radio occultation techniques to obtain proÿles of refractivity, temperature, pressure and water vapor in the neutral atmosphere and electron density in the ionosphere. The 9 GPS=MET experiment, which placed a GPS receiver in a low-Earth orbit, provided a wealth of data which was used to test this concept and the accuracy of the retrievals. Several investigations have already demonstrated that the retrieval accuracies… CONTINUE READING
