Suominet University Activities



    ARM Participation in SuomiNet: (http://www.arm.gov)
    The more than 100 registered SuomiNet sites include 15 SGP extended facility locations.


    University of Arizona - GPS Precipitable Water Vapor (PWV): (http://www.atmo.arizona.edu/faculty/research/gps/gps_pwv.html)
    Our GPS/PWV stations are part of a university-based GPS Network for Atmospheric and Geodetic Research and Education Sponsored by the National Science Foundation.


    Colorado State University: (http://vapor.atmos.colostate.edu/suominet.html)
    Welcome to the CSU SuomiNet data access! Below you will find links to access current and archive water vapor data for the Fort Collins SuomiNet site.


    Florida Institute of Technology (http://my.fit.edu/wx_fit/index.php)
    Florida Tech Department of Marine and Environmental Systems. Meteorology Activities.


    IHOP2002: (http://www.ucar.edu/communications/quarterly/spring02/ihop.html)
    As they slice through the Oklahoma sky, signals from the Global Positioning System will add an important element to IHOP2002. Techniques developed over the past few years allow scientists to infer the amount of water vapor along the slanted path from a GPS satellite to a ground-based receiver. At IHOP, a critical mass of these receivers and other sensors could lead to a breakthrough in the use of GPS to assess moisture overhead.


    Lyndon State College: (http://apollo.lsc.vsc.edu/classes/remote/lecture_notes/gps/)
    A current initiative exists to install a national (and international) network of GPS receivers at Universities so that PWV data can be collected with much greater resolution on a national scale. The network is referred to as SuomiNet.


    Massachusetts Institute of Technology: (http://www-gpsg.mit.edu/~tah/cont98g/cont98.html)
    Added two stations from the SuomiNet network. The sites are Trimble 4700 recievers with SA09 having a TRM33429.00+GP, L1/L2 microcentered Compact antenna with Ground plane, antenna and SA13 having a TRM29659.00 Choke ring antenna.


    Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Haystack SuomiNet Station: (http://www.haystack.edu/suominet/data/index.shtml)
    As a participant in this project MIT Haystack Observatory operates a SuomiNet GPS receiver and meteorological package (SA01).


    Millersville University - Department Of Earth Sciences: (http://www.atmos.millersville.edu/metall/html/research2003.htm)
    Millersville Meteorology is a research partner in the SuomiNet, a cooperative network of GPS receivers and ancillary sensors organized for innovative studies in meteorology and geosciences.


    University Of Missouri - Atmospheric Science Program: (http://solberg.snr.missouri.edu/mcreynolds.html)


    Monash University - Monash Suominet Site:
    (http://www.arts.monash.edu.au/ges/research/climate/weather/)
    (http://www.arts.monash.edu.au/ges/research/climate/suominet/index.html)
    (http://www.arts.monash.edu.au/ges/research/climate/suominet) (Not enabled for Netscape 4.7)
    The resulting continuous, accurate, all-weather, real-time GPS moisture data will help advance university research in mesoscale modeling and data assimilation, severe weather, precipitation, cloud dynamics, regional climate, and hydrology. Similarly, continuous, accurate, all-weather, real-time TEC data have applications in modeling and prediction of severe terrestrial and space weather, detection and forecasting of low-altitude ionospheric scintillation activity and geomagnetic storm effects at ionospheric midlatitudes, and detection of ionospheric effects induced by a variety of geophysical events. SuomiNet data also have potential applications in coastal meteorology, providing ground truth for satellite radiometry, and detection of scintillation associated with atmospheric turbulence in the lower troposphere.


    Purdue University - SuomiNet At Purdue: (http://www.eas.purdue.edu/~jhaase/projects/suominet.html)
    SuomiNet is a proposed network of GPS receivers to be located at universities and other locations to provide realtime atmospheric precipitable water vapor measurements and other geodetic and meteorological information.


    University of Sonora - Laboratorio de Física Interdisciplinaria (In Spanish): (http://www.fisica.uson.mx/carlos/Environment/QueEsSuominet.htm)
