Water Cycle Studies Using GPS Ground Networks

GPS reflections is a new technique that uses data from existing GPS sites to monitor water stored on land in soil, plants, and snow. Water cycle products are derived from the interference
between the direct and reflected GPS signals; they represent a region ~25m in radius around the antenna.
