Instruments, data and techniques for the assessment of tropospheric noise in deep space tracking
Paper in proceedings, 2012

This paper describes the techniques currently in use and those proposed for a precise estimation of the Earth troposphere path delay for Deep Space probe tracking purposes. The different proposed techniques could be selected according to the to the mission goals and tracking accuracy requirements. In this paper, they are sorted by an increasing accuracy but also level of complexity.
