  • Abstract The technique of observing water vapor in the atmosphere by GPS signals became popular in recent years, and the precision has already reached the micrometer level.
    The purpose of this study is to retrieve the content of water vapor associated to a GPS signal, which is important in the GPS tomographic method. In this research, we use the data of twenty four GPS stations in Taiwan to resolve zero difference residuals. The distances between these GPS stations are too short, so these residuals are relative values to those chosen fixed stations. Then we use the atmosphere model developed by our laboratory to solve the precipitable water vapor (PW) from a fixed station and the slant water vapor (SW) with a GPS signal.
    In this paper, we specially observe the track and SW of the No.30 and No.11 GPS satellite, because its data are almost complete, to study the correlation between SW and weather change. In the end, the result verifies with the water vapor radiometer (WVR) and they present good match.
