When processing code-and carrier-phase ranges sampled at individual epochs, the control baseline of a pair of reference receivers can bring forth relative integer-valued ambiguities and tropospheric delays. The estimates are usually so accurate that they may act as constraints, when a roving user who operates in the network of references requires instantaneous position solutions. This paper has the objective of taking advantage of a tropospheric zenith delay surface for the users ranging corrections. A local network of six reference stations was used to study the single-epoch position estimation, which revealed that with the increased reliability of ambiguity resolution on both L1 and L2 carriers, global positioning system-derived height accuracy was refined by more than 60%.
