Atmospheric Profiles from COSMIC Occultation Data
Entry ID: NCAR_DS723.0


Summary
Abstract: Using a radio occultation technique, scientists are able to use signals broadcast from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites to retrieve profiles of bending angles, refractivity, temperature, pressure, and water vapor in the atmosphere. Also, profiles of electron density in the ionosphere. Such data are gathered and processed at the ... View entire text
