School on “The Determination and Use of the Geoid”

From November 13 to 17, 2023 will be held the 14th International School on “The Determination and Use of the Geoid”. The School will take place at the Instituto Geográfico Nacional, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The School will be held in person and classes will be taught only in English.

The general purpose of the full-week intensive Geoid School is to prepare new graduate students, young scientists, and employees of national agencies to compute and use gravimetric geoids for scientific and technical applications in Geodesy. In addition, the School provides an excellent opportunity to familiarize with the latest geoid determination development and improve international contacts and collaborations among scientists dealing with gravity field modeling.

In addition, the scientific community must be linked to the Cartographic Agencies responsible for implementing the GGRF in the country so that the research carried out in the scientific framework can be applied to develop regional and local regional geodesy.

The geoid school will be organized in cooperation with the International Service for the Geoid of the International Association of Geodesy

For better use of the knowledge that will be taught at the School, attendees must have a basic understanding of the following topics:

  • Concepts about gravimetric measurements and calculations
  • Concepts about altimetric measurements and calculations
  • Concepts on calculation and use of Digital Elevation Models
  • Concepts about Geopotential Models
