dc.description.abstract Traditionally used for high precision geodesy, the GPS system has recently emerged as an equally powerful tool in atmospheric studies, in particular, climatology and meteorology. There are several products of GPS-based systems that are of interest to climatologists and meteorologists. One of the most important is the GPS-based estimate of the amount of Precipitable Water Vapor (PWV) in the troposphere. Water vapor is an important variable in the study of climate changes and atmospheric convection, and is of crucial importance for severe weather forecasting and operational numerical weather prediction. In this paper we discuss various aspects of the process by which Zenith Wet Delay (ZWD) are estimated from GPS data and we describe a very simple estimation stratagy for near real time applications. en_US
