Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 129)


The technique and method of wave measurement using a single GPS receiver are given in this paper. Displacement measurement experiment and simulated wave measurement experiment with a single GPS receiver are done, the two experimental data is processed and analyzed. The feasibility of wave measurement with a GPS receiver is validated.
