Title: A History of GPS Sounding
Authors: Yunck, T.

Ware, R.
Issue Date: Oct-1999
Citation: Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (TAO)
Abstract: The roots of GPS sounding go back to the first days of interplanetary flight. Today we have the almost concurrent emergence of the very element vital to a new global enterprise in GPS sounding: copious high beacons at ideal frequencies bathing the globe; a profusion of low obiters carrying GPS receivers and designed for real-time global data transfer; low-cost microelectronics of unprecedented power; and the occultation techniques itself the most precise and arguably the simplest atmospheric probe yet devised.
