In this paper, the basic precise point positioning model has been reviewed. A recursive least square algorithm that separates the position coordinates and other parameters, such as ambiguities and tropospheric delays, is proposed for kinematic PPP applications. A test was carried out to test the method proposed in this paper, which made use of a GPS buoy equipped with a pressure and a tilt meter to monitor the sea level in Hong Kong. The initial results from kinematic PPP positioning compared with conventional kinematic positioning methods shows the accuracy of decimetre level positioning accuracy can be achieved by the PPP method.
