The GPS-NRT datastream is used to create an European IWV map.

The map is produced using ground based GPS. The ZTD estimates are converted into IWV using nearby SYNOP stations.

  • The map below shows an animation of the last 24 hours.
  • The map is updated every hour at HH:16.
  • Wind barbs from 2km height, wind information taken from wind profiler, AMDAR and radiosonde ascents
