[1] A total of 954 continuous GPS position time series from 414 individual sites in nine different GPS solutions were analyzed for noise content using maximum likelihood estimation (MLE). The lengths of the series varied from around 16 months to over 10 years. MLE was used to analyze the data in two ways. In the first analysis the noise was assumed to be white noise only, a combination of white noise plus flicker noise, or a combination of white noise plus random walk noise. For the second… 

Effect of the span of Australian GPS coordinate time series in establishing an optimal noise model

The span of coordinate time series affects the determination of an optimal noise model. We analyzed position data recorded for 10 continuous Global Positioning System (GPS) sites from 1998.0 to

The influence of different types of noise on the velocity uncertainties in GPS time series analysis

A proper GPS time series analysis in which the sources of noise can be classified as: white noise, flicker noise and random walk, taking the data from two GPS stations for a period of 7.5 years.

Spatial Variations of Stochastic Noise Properties in GPS Time Series

The noise in position time series of 568 GPS stations across North America with an observation span of ten years is investigated and it is demonstrated that the spectral index in some regions flattens to zero at long periods while in other regions it is closer to −2.
