Project Description

The use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS, e.g. GPS, Galileo etc.) has become an everyday tool for determining our position. GNSS also allow measuring the atmospheric water vapor which is the most important gas for weather prediction and greenhouse effect. In the TRYAT-project we create learning materials on how to apply GNSS to the sensing of atmospheric water vapor and how to make use of this technique. We want to empower VET learners in the fields of physics, electronics, electrical engineering, geo- and environmental engineering and ICT.  We have developed a transnational partnership in order to promote science and innovation. The project includes five intellectual outputs (IO1 – IO5).

Our project includes measuring and interpreting atmospheric anomalies by using a dense ground based GNSS network and some co-located meteorological stations. We analyze the tropospheric delay observed on some continuous GNSS stations of the NeVoCGPS (Neapolitan Volcanoes Continuous GPS), a network managed by the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) for volcanic monitoring, as well as on other GNSS and meteorological stations acquired by this project. The scientific target is to study the wet component of the atmospheric delay by means of co-located GNSS and meteorological permanent recording stations and the computation of the precipitable water.


With a transnational partnership we address a wide range of educational fields such as physics, informatics, geography, electrical engineering, chemistry, social studies. The selected project partners contribute and exchange particular know-how and expertise in the fields of education, research, training and curriculum development.
