|Abstract:||Using carrier phase and pseudorange data from a small network of globally distributed GPS receivers with precise time references, we are able to estimate GPS clock parameters every 30 s, with subdecimeter accuracy, in a computationally efficient manner. The accuracy obtained is a factor of 100 to 1000 times better than that of clocks in the broadcast navigation message, and allows post- processing of high-rate single-receiver kinematic GPS data with few-centimeter-level precision when used in conjunction with precise GPS orbits. The amplitude of the daily clock variability is typically 24 m for satellites affected by Selective Availability @A). Temporal variations are well modeled by an autocorrelation function p = exp( - d2 1272) with r = 106 s.|
