Session Description

This session is open to all aspects of geodesy and geodynamics. This includes gravity, geoid and heights systems; innovations in positioning, navigation, and timing through a range of geodetic techniques including but not limited to GNSS and inertial positioning; combinations of geodetic observations and applications of geodetic measurements. Investigations into interpretation and application of the geodetic signal as a tool for understanding Earth’s rotation and polar motion; precise orbit determination; and analysis or prediction of ocean, atmosphere and internal processes of the Earth; or geodynamic processes and deformation at various scales; are also encouraged. Submissions dealing with practical applications of geodetic techniques in engineering or navigation are within the scope of this session.
