Dynamical Satellite Geodesy

    Project: Research area

    Description

    Research and development activities in Dynamical Satellite Geodesy range from orbit determination over gravity field determination to geodynamics. Orbit determination, orbit analysis and satellite gravity gradiometry focus on the determination of the Earth's global gravity field with high resolution and accuracy. Data assimilation from satellite altimetry provides detailed knowledge about the dynamical ocean topography. As an ultimate goal the temporal variations of the surface of the Earth and the gravity field are determined on the basis of geometric and physical satellite data. All research activities are conducted in close cooperation with the Satellite Geodesy Division of the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. not assigned GG: Bund
