Abstract: Radio occultation studies of the terrestrial atmosphere are possible through use of signals transmitted by satellites of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and received by one or more other satellites in low earth orbit (LEO). The perturbed phase of the occulted signal gives direct information on the refractivity profile in the region of occultation, from which vertical profiles of density, pressure, and temperature can be retrieved. Based on model simulations the capability of GPS to provide atmospheric profiles is assessed.
