This paper deals with the retrieval of integrated water vapor (IWV) from the zenith tropospheric delay estimated by precisely processing GPS observations at IEODO ocean research station in the East China Sea. A comparison of GPS-IWV with the radiosonde profiling from June and November in 2014 was made to confirm the method and the procedure, adopted for the IWV determination. A series of analysis of these IWV values was performed to capture characteristics of their seasonal and diurnal variations. Furthermore, the troposphere around the ocean research station during typhoon events was spatiotemporally analyzed by including thirteen GPS sites over the Korean Peninsula, indicating correlation between the typhoon location and the tropospheric density.
