[teqc] effect of Everest multipath reduction on GPS time series ?

Hi Chuck

People who understand multipath suppression better than I will let you know what Everest is doing, but certainly *carrier phase* multipath can produce long period artifacts which are not random - at least in combination with time-varying satellite geometry. If Everest is modifying this (and not just pseudorange multipath), then this will make a difference.

See my recent paper below - it's open access, so anyone can grab it

King, M.A., and C.S. Watson. 2010. Long GPS coordinate time series: multipath and geometry effects, J. Geophys. Res., 115, B04403, doi:10.1029/2009JB006543.

  Does anyone know whether Trimbles that have employed Everest multipath 
reduction for continuous recording give rise to coordinate time series 
that are any different than if the multipath reduction had NOT been used 
?   Is it conceivable that multipath reduction could give rise to time 
series artifacts that might change the apparent motion for one or more 
components of the station position or would it just tend to affect the 
daily random noise in estimated station coordinates without changing the 
apparent long-term slope ?

  Thanks, Chuck DeMets
