About

The GNSS solution named ’JPL14’ is produced by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) group using a Precise Point Positioning (PPP) data analysis strategy. JPL’s GipsyX software is employed to produce daily position time series for over 2,000 globally distributed stations using JPL satellite orbits and clock products expressed in the IGS14 reference frame. The data set covers the period January 1994 to December 2019.

This GNSS data analysis strategy complies with the standards (models, corrections,...) of the International GNSS Service (IGS) reanalysis (reprocessing) campaigns ; hence the Sixteenth session of the Group of Experts for the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS), held in Busan (Republic of Korea), 11-13 April 2019, tasked the SONEL data assembly centre to consider including the JPL solution (position time series and velocities) for the subset of GNSS stations nearby tide gauges. Among the more than 2,000 stations processed by JPL, as many as 328 have actually been identified as co-located, or nearby, tide gauges.

The GNSS velocities, provided here for 366 stations (nearby tide gauges and reference frame stations included) with a minimum record length of 3 years and data gaps not exceeding 30%, are also produced by JPL.
