Short summary
A troposphere tomographic method has been proposed considering the signal rays penetrating from the side of the area of interest. Given the method above needs the establishment of a unit scale factor model using the radiosonde data at only one location in the research area, an improved approach is proposed by considering the reasonability of modelling data and the diversity of the modelling parameters for building a more accurate unit scale factor model.
