        abstract:  Integrated (total column) precipitable water (IPW) is retrieved from excess delays in the Global Positioning System (GPS) radio signals caused by water vapor in the lower atmosphere.
        purpose:  Evaluate the engineering and scientific bases of surface-based GPS meteorology; Demonstrate the feasibility and utility of using surface-based GPS observations for improved weather forecasting, climate monitoring, and satellite sensor calibration/validation; Transfer this observing system technology to operational use.

                  Record:  GPS satellite radio signals are slowed as they pass through layers of Earth's atmosphere; the ionosphere and the neutral atmosphere. This slowing delays the arrival time of the transmitted signal from that expected if there were no intervening media. It is possible to correct for the ionospheric delay, which is frequency dependent, by using dual-frequency GPS receivers. In a ground-based measurement system, the signal delays from several (typically 6 or more) satellites in view are simultaneously measured. These delays are mathematically adjusted (scaled) such that all satellites are seemingly directly overhead (at zenith) simultaneously using the function 1/sin (elevation angle of the satellite). The averaged vertically scaled signal delay introduced by the atmospheric constituents is called the Zenith Total (or Tropospheric) Delay (ZTD). ZTD can be separated into two terms called the zenith hydrostatic delay (ZHD) and the zenith wet delay (ZWD). At sea level, ZTD has a magnitude of about 250cm to which the hydrostatic and wet components contribute about 97% and 3%: approximately proportional to the ratio of the total mass of dry air to water vapor in the atmosphere. ZTD can be estimated by constraining the positions of many widely-spaced GPS receivers and measuring the apparent error in position. When all system related errors are accounted for, the residual error is presumed to come from the neutral atmosphere. The ZHD is calculated by measuring the surface pressure and applying a mapping function. The ZHD is then subtracted from the ZTD to give the ZWD. With the ZWD known, IPW directly above a GPS antenna through a factor that is proportional to the mean temperature of the atmosphere. The mean air temperature is currently estimated from a surface temperature measurement and its relationship to the climatological history of the temperature profile for that region based on radiosonde data.
