Plain Language Summary: We studied the optimum analysis settings for precipitable water vapor (PWV) retrieval at sea using a ship-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Based on the results of comparison of GNSS-derived PWV with the Meso-scale Analysis of the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), a new setting combination was selected. The use of the new setting combination improved the agreement between the GNSS-derived PWV and other observations.
