Short summary
We present a statistical framework for estimating GNSS receiver bias by using a weighted linear least squares of independent differences (WLLSID) model to examine differences of a large number of TEC measurements. This allows a consistent way for treating elevation-dependent model errors and spatiotemporal distance-dependent geophysical differences arising in ionospheric GNSS measurements. The method is also applicable to other GNSS system than GPS, supporting, e.g., GLONASS.
