Global Geodetic Observing System
With the provision of accurate reference frames and observations of changes in Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation, modern geodesy takes a fundamental role for improved understanding of geodynamics, geohazards, the global water cycle, global change, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, and it supports many societal applications that depend on accurate positions. The book provides a comprehensive overview of geodesy's contribution to science and society at large, and it identifies user needs and requirements in terms of geodetic observations and products. Specifications for a global geodetic observing system that would meet these requirements lead to considerations of system design and implementation.
