Coarse grain is certainly a good way of saying it. The ionosphere 
corrections are based on a simplification and then fitting data to the 
model curve. The way to improve on this is to use DGPS sources such as 
WAAS/EGNOS, which should be good enough for most timing purposes of the 

Estimating ionospheric delay using dual frequency beats that. Still 
leaves tropospheric delays thought. Reference network helps for that.
