GRAS Zenith Pseudo Ranges and Carrier Phases Auxiliary Data Record Release 1 - Metop

Abstract:
The RINEX dataset is a supplementary dataset to the Release 1, 2 and 3 - GRAS Level 1b Bending Angle FCDRs. The RINEX files contain pseudorange, carrier phase, and amplitude/SNR data of the zenith antenna, and are formatted in standard RINEX v2.10 observation format. One RINEX file is available per day, with a file size of approximately 65 MB per file. The approximate size of the complete RINEX data record is about 415 GB for Metop-A , 237 GB for Metop-B and 50 GB for Metop-C. This is a Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR).
