During the expedition, the GPS signal was logged by an u-Blox EVK-6T-0-001 receiver and an ANN-MS antenna. Besides the position signal, the following signals were logged as well: Ephemeris data, Time and position, Satellite elevation and azimuth, Pseudo-range, carrier-phase, Doppler and Ionospheric correction. The aim is to investigate the signal quality of GPS in the Arctic region.
