Introduction

INTRODUCTION


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

PROJECT INTRODUCTION

  • Background:

    • For NDGPS to meet higher accuracy demands, tropospheric delay modeling (along with other error handling) must be significantly improved

    • NOAA has developed a conventional / GPS tropospheric model

  • Objectives:

    • An independent, extensive analysis of NOAA model

    • Analysis of improvement in GPS data processing results

    • Analysis of how data can be delivered and applied

hydrostatic or “dry” delay

wet delay

~ 90% of total delay / e.g., 180 cm / mostly predictable

~ 10% of total delay / e.g., 20 cm / very irregular

Double-difference slant delay =

(mf1j * zpd1j - mf1k * zpd1k) - (mf2j * zpd2j - mf2k * zpd2k)

zpd1j ~ zpd2j ; zpd1k ~ zpd2k

mf1j ~ mf2j ; mf1k ~ mf2k

 slant delay ~ 0

Evaluation methodology

EVALUATION METHODOLOGY


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

METHODOLOGY

  • First phase of analysis: range domain evaluations

  • Compare NOAA tropo. corrections against other predictors in space and time


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

MODELS / ESTIMATES:IGS SINEX PRODUCT

  • GPS-only estimate of ZPD at fixed sites

  • Blended solution from number of int’l organizations

  • Estimated precision: < 1 cm reference solution


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

MODELS / ESTIMATES:NOAA TROPOSPHERIC PRODUCT

  • Developed by Forecast Systems Lab, NOAA

  • http://www.gpsmet.noaa.gov

  • Numerical weather prediction model output using GPS data assimilated from CONUS

  • Input: lat., long., ell. hgt., time

  • Output: zenith hydrostatic delay and zenith wet delay

  • Time interval: 1 hr; Grid: ~20 km; up to 2 hr prediction

  • Realized in suite of C, FORTRAN, and Perl programs accessing NOAA tropo. grids via FTP

Conclusions and future work

CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE WORK


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

CONCLUSIONS

  • Taken “first look” at NOAA ZWD decorrelation in space and time

  • Initial evaluation indicates NOAA ZPD rms of ~1cm, as compared to IGS SINEX tropo.

  • NOAA ZPD as good or better (few cm) than closed form prediction models, as compared to IGS SINEX tropo.


Sunil bisnath and david dodd hydrographic science research center

FUTURE WORK

  • Range domain analysis: Expand analysis to include more stations and more months of data

  • Position domain analysis: Apply tropospheric models in undifferenced processing and double-differenced, float processing

  • Correction output and usage: Devise methods and budgets (precision and data volumes) to supply and use corrections
