GGOS Session at EGU 2022

During the next EGU 2022 General Assembly, GGOS will have its own session about Geodesy for Science and Society. This session welcomes contributions on general GGOS topics, particularly those related to scientific and social aspects of GGOS applications. If you want to contribute to this session, please upload your abstract until the abstract submission deadline on January 12.

Don’t miss it and upload your abstact!

The Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) provides measurements of the time varying gravity, rotation, and shape of the Earth using space and terrestrial geodetic techniques. These measurements must be accurate to better than a part per billion in order to advance our understanding of the underlying processes responsible for temporal changes in the Earth’s
rotation, gravity, and shape. Demanding applications of geodesy include mass transport in the global water cycle, sea level
and climate change, and crustal deformation associated with geohazards. All these measurements require a common reference with the same precision, like the Terrestrial Reference Frame and the Unified Height System. GGOS is designed to unite the individual observations and model into one consistent frame with the highest precision available to be realized as
Global Geodetic Reference Frame (GGRF).
