Short summary
This paper proposes an optimal tropospheric tomography approach with the support of an auxiliary area, which has the ability to use the signals crossing out from the top boundary of the tomographic area. Additionally, the top height of the tomography body is determined based on the average water vapour distribution derived from the COSMIC data. The compared result reveals the superiority of the proposed method when compared to the conventional method.
