In this paper, we verified accuracy of the satellite based augmentation system (SBAS) tropospheric delay correction model for the Korean region. We employed the precise data of the tropospheric zenith path delay (ZPD) which is provided by the international GNSS service (IGS). In addition, we compared the verification results with that of the Saastamoinen model and the Hopfield model. Consequently, the bias residual error of the SBAS tropospheric delay correction model is about 50 mm, whereas the Saastamoinen model and the Hopfield model are more accurate. This residual error by the tropospheric delay model can affect the SBAS user position accuracy, but there is no problem in SBAS accuracy requirement. If we modified the meteorological parameters for SBAS tropospheric model to appropriate in Korean weather environment, we can provide better SBAS service to the Korean user.
