[en] Tropospheric delay and integrated water vapour (IWV) derived from climate reanalysis models, such as that of
the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) namely the ECMWF ReAnalysis-Interim
(ERA-Interim), are widely used in many geodetic and atmospheric applications. Therefore, it is of interest to
assess the quality of these reanalysis products using available observations. Observations from Global Navigation
Satellite Systems (GNSS) are, as of now, available for a period of over 2 decades and their global availability make
it possible to validate the zenith total delay (ZTD) and IWV obtained from climate reanalysis models in different
geographical and climatic regions. In this study, a 5-year long homogeneously reprocessed GNSS data set based on
double differenced positioning strategy and containing over 400 globally distributed ground-based GNSS stations
has been used as a reference to validate the ZTD estimates obtained from the ERA-Interim climate reanalysis
model in 25 different climate zones. It has been studied how the difference between the ERA-Interim ZTD and
the GNSS-derived ZTD varies with respect to the different climate zones as well as the topographic variations in a
particular climate zone. Periodicity in the ZTD residuals in different climate zones has been analyzed. Furthermore,
the variation of the ZTD differences with respect to latitude has been presented. Finally, for one GNSS station in
each of the 25 climate zones, IWV derived from ERA-Interim has been compared to the IWV derived using GNSS
observations.
