This paper considers the monitoring of integrated precipitable water vapour (IPWV) exploiting measurements of Global Positioning System (GPS) ground-based receivers with the purpose of analysing the behaviour of such parameter in occasion of precipitation events. A statistical characterisation of atmospheric water vapour content retrieved by GPS at specific receiver locations will be proposed to improve the knowledge of water vapour field of precipitation systems.
