[1] Apparent seasonal site position variations are derived from 4.5 years of global continuous GPS time series and are explored through the ‘‘peering’’ approach. Peering is a way to depict the contributions of the comparatively well-known seasonal sources to garner insight into the relatively poorly known contributors. Contributions from pole tide effects, ocean tide loading, atmospheric loading, nontidal oceanic mass, and groundwater loading are evaluated. Our results show that � 40% of the… 

Identifying the sensitivity of GPS to non-tidal loadings at various time resolutions: examining vertical displacements from continental Eurasia

We examine the sensitivity of the Global Positioning System (GPS) to non-tidal loading for a set of continental Eurasia permanent stations. We utilized daily vertical displacements available from the

Annual variation detected by GPS, GRACE and loading models

Most GPS coordinate time series, surface displacements derived from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), and loading models display significant annual signals at many regions. This

Influences of Environmental Loading Corrections on the Nonlinear Variations and Velocity Uncertainties for the Reprocessed Global Positioning System Height Time Series of the Crustal Movement Observation Network of China

Daily height time series derived from a homogeneously reprocessed Crustal Movement Observation Network of China (CMONOC) and corresponding loading displacements predicted by the Deutsche GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) are compared to assess the effects of loading corrections on the nonlinear variations of GPS time series.

Site-specific correlation of GPS height residuals with soil moisture variability using artificial neural networks

Historical time series generated from GPS sites reveal significant seasonal variations in the vertical direction. It is well known that continental waters (soil moisture, snow, ground water) mass

Impact of solid Earth tide models on GPS coordinate and tropospheric time series

Unmodelled sub‐daily periodic signals can propagate into time series of daily geodetic coordinates and tropospheric estimates at various different frequencies. Geophysical interpretations of geodetic

Vertical deformations from homogeneously processed GRACE and global GPS long-term series

Temporal variations in the geographic distribution of surface mass cause surface displacements. Surface displacements derived from GRACE gravity field coefficient time series also should be observed

Analysis of continuous GPS measurements from southern Victoria Land, Antarctica

Several years of continuous data have been collected at remote bedrock Global Positioning System (GPS) sites in southern Victoria Land, Antarctica. Annual to sub-annual variations are observed in the



Geophysical interpretation of observed geocenter variations

Geocenter variations are caused by mass redistribution within the Earth system, especially the atmosphere, oceans, and continental water. Using surface pressure fields, and soil moisture and snow

Atmospheric pressure loading effects on Global Positioning System coordinate determinations

Earth deformation signals caused by atmospheric pressure loading are detected in vertical position estimates at Global Positioning System (GPS) stations. Surface displacements due to changes in

Accuracy assessment of the large‐scale dynamic ocean topography from TOPEX/POSEIDON altimetry

The quality of TOPEX/POSEIDON determinations of the global scale dynamic ocean topography have been assessed by determining mean topography solutions for successive 10-day repeat cycles and by

Atmospheric mass loads and deforms the earth's crust. By performing a convolution sum between daily, global barometric pressure data and mass loading Green's functions, we estimate the time dependent

Annual vertical crustal motions predicted from surface mass redistribution and observed by space geodesy

Temporal variations of surface mass redistribution among atmosphere, oceans, and continental water reservoirs deform the Earth's crust, in particular in the vertical direction. These displacements

We develop a formalism for parameterizing and evaluating the effects of lateral variations in the properties of Earth's atmosphere on the propagation of microwave signals. A parametric form is

The static response of sea level to the forcing of atmospheric pressure, the so-called inverted barometer (IB) effect, is investigated using TOPEX/POSEIDON data. This response, characterized by the
