Short Name:

Ground-Based Meteorological Data (hourly files) from Co-Located Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Receivers from NASA CDDIS

This dataset consists of ground-based Meteorological Data (hourly, 24 hour files) from instruments co-located with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers from the NASA Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS). GNSS provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. GNSS data sets from ground receivers at the CDDIS consist primarily of the data from the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS). Since 2011, the CDDIS GNSS archive includes data from other GNSS (Europe’s Galileo, China’s Beidou, Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System/QZSS, the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System/IRNSS, and worldwide Satellite Based Augmentation Systems/SBASs), which are similar to the U.S. GPS in terms of the satellite constellation, orbits, and signal structure. The hourly meteorological data files contain one day of meteorological data (temperature, pressure, humidity, etc.) in RINEX format from a global permanent network of ground-based receivers, one file per site. More information about these data is available on the CDDIS website at
