The electromagnetic signal transmitted by the global navigation and positioning systems (GNSS) suffers a delay which is mainly caused by the water vapor in the atmosphere. Estimating the delay affecting the signal propagation, it is possible to estimate the water vapor column on the troposphere above each station. The aim of this study is to characterize the water vapor field on the troposphere over time by GNSS techniques. It is expected that can also come to assist in the Nowcasting… CONTINUE READING
