This project explores ground-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) tropospheric products and their role in forecasting severe weather events and climate monitoring.
The project will address new and improved capabilities from new developments in the GNSS and meteorological communities. For the first time, the synergy of the three GNSS systems (the American GPS, Russian GLONASS and European Galileo) will be used to develop new, advanced tropospheric products. This will exploit the full potential of multi-GNSS water vapour estimates on a wide range of temporal and spatial scales, from real-time monitoring and forecasting of severe weather, to climate research.
The primary objectives of this research are:
Another main focus of the project is to strengthen and intensify this inter-disciplinary collaboration and to encourage cross-border cooperation.
This research is a large scale project involving research institutions from the following countries; Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Spain, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Slovakia, Turkey, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Tunisia and the United States.
