Analysis of GPS radio occultation data from the FORMOSAT-3 / COSMIC and Metop / GRAS missions at CDAAC

  title={Analysis of GPS radio occultation data from the FORMOSAT-3 / COSMIC and Metop / GRAS missions at CDAAC},
  author={William S. Schreiner and Sergey Sokolovskiy and Diego Hunt and C. Rocken},
This study investigates the noise level and mission-to-mission stability of Global Positioning System (GPS) radio occultation (RO) neutral atmospheric bending angle data at the UCAR COSMIC Data Analysis and Archive Center (CDAAC). Data are used from two independently developed RO instruments currently flying in orbit on the FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC (F3C) and Metop/GRAS (GNSS Receiver for Atmospheric Sounding) missions. The F3C 50 Hz RO data are post-processed with a singledifference excess atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
