Abstract : <p>This work aims to provide a quick review of different experiments conducted in the past for the estimation of integrated water vapor content from shipborne GNSS receiver. This state of the art will be confronted with results obtained using GPS data acquired by the French Hydrographic Ship Borda on a cruise over Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, from Brest to Toulon in August 2015; the estimated IWV are compared with satellite observations (MODIS) and outputs from numerical weather prediction models (ERAI, ERA5, Arpege, Arome); while differences between GPS and MODIS retrievals reach almost 4 kg/m2 in terms of RMS, agreement is generally much better with numerical models (2 up to 3 kg/m2 in terms of RMS). Use of real-time orbit and clocks product is also investigated in order to assess the performance of near real-time GPS-IWV estimation for NWP purposes. We will draw out the prospects in terms of possibilities and opportunities for the use of shipborne GNSS IWV for meteorology and climatology.</p>
