Abstract

Long-range kinematic GPS with carrier phase was evaluated in both at on-land and sea tests. The on-land was performed to provide more strict control of kinematic GPS solution. Here, the antenna of rover station was driven slowly and simultaneously in up-down horizontal direction during observations period. The mechanism of antenna driven was reoccupied every 1 hour for the five days observation. Baseline lengths ranged from a few kilometers (for control purpose) to more than 100 kilometers. The long-baseline result was checked for consistency at successive occupation of the same rover station. These results intented to be used as the preliminary stage for the determination of wave height from GPS buoy located farther from shore. The outcome of the tests indicate an overall consistencies of standard deviation in up-down and horizontal components during five days observation in off-line kinematic GPS processing, over 6 hours, +-2cm and +-6mm for baseline longer than 100 kilometers, respectively. These results look promising for the determination of tsunami waves with GPS receiver on buoys anchored far from the coast.
