Abstract:

The recent development of On-The-Fly OTF ambiguity resolution techniques with Global Positioning System observations has created a powerful tool for the study of dynamic time series, such as tidal analysis or the study of water level heights. Using OTF technology it should be possible to obtain a time series of water surface heights to an accuracy of 1 to 2 centimeters, at a 1 second sampling rate, many kilometers from the nearest land. Subsequent time series analysis will yield a water surface datum at the receiver location. On- the-Fly, Study of water levels, Datum, Bay of Fundy
