This paper presents results of the troposphere spatial and temporal variability studies from the network of global satellite navigation system receivers. According to experimental data from GPS receiver network, spaced at distances from 1 to 35 km, the seasonal variability of the intensity of mesoscale variations and daily dynamics of mesoscale inhomogeneity is estimated, horizontal structure functions of zenith tropospheric delay are calculated. A relationship with the fields of humidity, pressure, and wind speed is found.
