Astronomers use pulsars as astronomical clocks to perform physical tests, such as in testing Einstein's Theory of General Relativity. As these tests require more precise clock time measurements, we run into problems associated with the pulses traveling through particles in space. Using data taken simultaneously at two radio telescopes, we looked to improve the precision of measurements taken of two pulsars. We looked for correlations between data sets using a variety of techniques to account for the error in our measurements. We report our results in the hopes that these methods can be used in future pulsar timings.
