  • 1300 – 1445WRAP UP SESSION / Discussion of Opportunities

  • 1445 – 1500CLOSING REMARKSDave Wells The University of Southern Mississippi


Workshop organization

  • Charge to breakout groups

  • Five topics for break-out group discussion are identified below.

  • Please mark your first and second choices on the sign-up sheet being circulated.

  • The topics chosen for the actual breakout groups will depend on the interest y’all show.

  • The following issues / questions are NOT breakout group “do-lists”. They are only suggested starting points, from which each group will select the few issues of most concern to group members.


Workshop organization

  • 1 - Modeling of temporal and spatial water level variations / seamless vertical datum

  • What are the prospects for future enhancements in spatial tidal modeling performance?

  • What are the main limitations to this performance?

  • What are the needs and requirements for a seamless vertical reference frame?

  • What are the ingredients required to realize the concept of a seamless vertical reference frame?

  • What enhancements are possible / required in geoid – ellipsoid separation models to realize the goal of a seamless datum?

  • What enhancements are possible / required in tidal datum – ellipsoid separation models to realize the goal of a seamless datum?

  • How do the two approaches to datum transfer field generation used by NOAA compare (i.e. the hydrodynamical model generated field, and the data-generated field also known as TCARI = Tidal Constituent and residual Interpolation)?

  • What other approaches may be possible / feasible?

  • Is the Princeton Ocean Model the best basis for tidal datum field hydrodynamical modeling?

  • What are the opportunities for collaboration among government agencies in addressing these questions?


Workshop organization

  • 2 – Convergence of GPS processing approaches

  • What are the advantages, disadvantages and performance differences among PPK processing based on the (a) single baseline (b) network, and (c) point positioning approaches? Are these approaches fundamentally different?

  • What are the opportunities for convergence of these three methods?

  • What challenges must be overcome for such convergence?

  • What improved accuracy and reliability of results can be demonstrated by PPK in comparison with RTK?

  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of PPK vs RTK?

  • What are the prospects / needs for increased communication system bandwidth to support reliable RTK?

  • What differences in performance have been experienced with different PPK software packages?

  • What are the prospects for future enhancements in this performance?

  • What are the main limitations to this performance?

  • What are the opportunities for collaboration among PPK users and suppliers in addressing these questions?


Workshop organization

  • 3 – What should a GPS PPK “height” be?

  • What variety of PPK solution antenna height is most useful for marine PPK users (e.g. ellipsoid heights, heights above Chart Datum at a defined water level gauge location, height above a modeled Chart Datum at the user’s location)?

  • What should be reported in the NMEA GGA string altitude field?

  • How important is an accurate geoid-ellipsoid separation in the GGA geoid height field? How should this be computed?

  • What are the impacts of earth tides and ocean tidal loading on heights reported to users? Should the ellisoid - geoid separation in the GGA string vary with earth tide and/or tide loading? Should an earth tide corrector be supplied, or an algorithm supplied to users?


Workshop organization

  • 4 – Future prospects for long range PPK

  • What are the projected capabilities (range, ambiguity-resolution reliability, etc.) today and in the near future to be provided by proposed commercial and public CPDGPS services?

  • What are the prospects for future enhancements in this performance? What are the main limitations to this performance?

  • What are the prospects / needs / benefits for raw data (not corrections) from dozens or hundreds of reference stations to “rain down” on users?

  • What are the prospects for higher accuracy broadcast ephemeris and satellite clock models?

  • What are the prospects for greatly reduced GPS multipath contamination?

  • What will be the impact of the changes due to GPS modernization on PPK performance?

  • What will be the impact of Galileo signals on combined GPS / Galileo PPK performance?

  • What increased performance could result from a re-designed satellite constellation?

  • What are the opportunities for collaboration among PPK users and suppliers to address these questions?


Workshop organization

  • 5 – Towards better atmospheric modeling

  • How important is the issue of ionospheric errors now (using expensive dual frequency receivers), and in the future (using C2 and inexpensive dual frequency receivers)?

  • What improved PPK performance might be expected were the troposphere (differential tropospheric delays) to be perfectly modeled?

  • How close can we aspire to achieve this goal, through the use of numerical weather models?

  • What specific differential tropospheric delay procedures are presently available, and how can they be improved in the future?

  • How applicable are existing numerical weather models (generally collected over land) to estimating tropospheric delays over the ocean?

  • What is the best method of testing and evaluating the impact of new approaches to atmospheric modeling on marine PPK performance?


Workshop organization

  • Logistics items

  • Coffee breaks are here in the room.

  • Lunches at in the dining room at the west end of the entrance corridor.

  • The photo session in 30 minutes is under the Friendship Oak just outside.

  • There is an Email facility available here in the room.

  • Each speaker should have received a complementary Portable Flash Drive (USB memory stick). Please put your presentation on these drives ASAP, and ask Robyn Montgomery to add it to our collection.

  • With your cooperation, we intend to distribute Workshop CDs containing all presentations before we wrap-up on Thursday.

  • We need the meal and breakout sign-up sheets returned by first coffee break.
