Short summary
Accurate knowledge of water vapor (WV) is vital for global climate studies. The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) has been used as an emerging tool for sensing integrated WV (IWV). In the determination of PWV, surface pressure is required. However, few GNSS stations were installed with meteorological sensors back in the 1990s. Our research indicates that the ERA-Interim-derived pressure has the potential to be used to obtain high-accuracy IWV on a global scale for climate studies.
