Abstract The signals from the Cassini spacecraft that will be used for radio science experiments will be affected by delay fluctuations in the Earths atmosphere. These fluctuations are dominated by water vapor in the troposphere, and in the case of the gravitational wave experiment (GWE), they are likely to be a limiting error source. A passive remote sensing system, centered around a water vapor radiometer (WVR), has been developed to provide calibrations of water vapor fluctuations during… CONTINUE READING
