[en] The number of GNSS satellites and their geometry directly affect the quality of positioning and derived satellite products. Accordingly, the International GNSS Service (IGS) recommends GNSS antennas to be installed away from natural and man-made surfaces and structures, which may affect the incoming signals through severe multipath or obstructions. Following these recommendations, continuous GNSS (cGNSS) stations are generally located in low multipath environments with minimal signal obstructions. However, some applications require GNSS antennas to be installed at specific locations in order to measure local processes. Hence, in support of sea level studies, cGNSS stations must be installed close to or at tide gauges in order to accurately monitor the local vertical land movements experienced by the sea level sensors. However, the environment at the tide gauge might not be optimal for GNSS observations due to the aforementioned station-specific effects, which degrade the quality of coordinate solutions.This first study investigates the impact of severe signal obstructions on long-term monitoring results by use of simulated and real observations for selected cGNSS stations, and evaluates if the use of multi-GNSS (GPS+GLONASS) constellations will benefit derived results. To investigate these effects, we implemented azimuth and elevation dependent masking in the Bernese GNSS Software version 5.2. We present our preliminary results on the impact of different obstruction scenarios and combined GPS and GLONASS solutions on coordinate and vertical land movement estimates.
