Project Description

In Europe there is a general lack of applicants for science-oriented jobs. We are convinced that the project results also qualify to raise interest in careers in the fields of mathematics, informatics, sciences, and engineering.

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers, using GPS, GLONASS, Galileo or Beidou system, are used in many applications. Permanent high-precision GNSS stations currently operate for geodetic purposes. We want to show that they also offer a tool for a reliable remote sensing of atmospheric water vapour.

Our project includes measuring and interpreting atmospheric anomalies by using a dense ground based GNSS network and some co-located meteorological stations. We will analyze the tropospheric delay observed on some continuous GNSS stations of the NeVoCGPS (Neapolitan Volcanoes Continuous GPS) network managed by 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 of our project 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.

 

We would like to develop a transnational partnership addressing a wide range of educational fields such as physics, informatics, geography, electrical engineering, chemistry, social studies. The selected project partners will be able to contribute and exchange particular know-how and expertise in the fields of education, research, training and curriculum development. For further details, see TRYAT POSTER.
