The Global Geodetic Observing System: Geodesy for Science and Society

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). This session welcomes contributions on general GGOS topics, particularly those related to scientific and social aspects of GGOS applications.

Convener: Kosuke Heki | Co-conveners: Martin Sehnal, Allison Craddock, Laura Sanchez, David Mayer
