An Assessment of Atmospheric Turbulence for CONT05 and CONT08
Conference contribution, 2009

We present results from the analyis of simulated VLBI data and compare these to re- sults from the analysis of actually observed data. We use a method based upon theory of atmo- spheric turbulence to simulate the atmospheric delays. We concentrate on the comparison of station position repeatabilities for CONT05 and CONT08. The results show that atmospheric turbulence is the most important error source for geodetic VLBI today.
