Global Mapping Function (GMF): A new empirical mapping function based on numerical weather model data

Tregoning, Paul; Boehm, J.; Niell, A; Schuh, H.


Troposphere mapping functions are used in the analyses of Global Positioning System and Very Long Baseline Interferometry observations to map a priori zenith hydrostatic and wet delays to any elevation angle. Most analysts use the Niell Mapping Function (NMF) whose coefficients are determined from site coordinates and the day of year. Here we present the Global Mapping Function (GMF), based on data from the global ECMWF numerical weather model. The coefficients of the GMF were obtained from an...[Show more]
