OVERVIEW OF PRESENTATION ON NDGPS

  • Project introduction

  • Evaluation methodology

  • Initial results

  • Conclusions and future work


Introduction

INTRODUCTION ON NDGPS


PROJECT INTRODUCTION ON NDGPS

  • 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 ON NDGPS

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

METHODOLOGY ON NDGPS

  • First phase of analysis: range domain evaluations

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


MODELS / ESTIMATES: ON NDGPSIGS SINEX PRODUCT

  • GPS-only estimate of ZPD at fixed sites

  • Blended solution from number of int’l organizations

  • Estimated precision: < 1 cm reference solution


MODELS / ESTIMATES: ON NDGPSNOAA 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


MODELS / ESTIMATES: ON NDGPSCLOSED FORM PREDICTION MODELS

  • Hopfield:

    • Neill m.f.

  • Saastamoinen:

CONCLUSIONS ON NDGPS

  • 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.


FUTURE WORK ON NDGPS

  • 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
