G2.2: The Global Geodetic Observing System: Tying and Integrating
Geodetic Techniques for Research and Applications

Dear Colleagues,

The organizers of EGU2011 have extended the abstract submission 
deadline by one day to 11 January 2011:

"Due to extensive requests from authors and conveners who are just
 returning today from holidays, we have extended by ONE DAY the
 ABSTRACT DEADLINE for submission of abstracts to the European
 Geosciences Union General Assembly 2011 (EGU2011).

 The extended deadline for the EGU2011 is Tuesday, 11 January 2011
 (24:00, GMT)."

We would like you to consider to contribute to session G2.2.

All the best for the new year.

Best regards,


    EGU General Assembly -- Vienna, Austria, 03 - 08 April 2011

Dear Colleagues -

As part of the EGU General Assembly that will be held in Vienna, Austria during 03-08 April 2011 there will be a session on "The Global Geodetic Observing System: Tying and Integrating Geodetic Techniques for Research and Applications". The description of the session is given below.

On behalf of the conveners I would like to draw your attention to this session and encourage you to participate in it. We are developing a rich session that will explore the consistency and integration of measurements from different geodetic techniques and their use in studying the Earth's time-variable surface geometry. We hope that you will be able to join us in Vienna for this exciting session. More information about the EGU General Assembly 2011 can be obtained from its web site at <http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2011/home.html>.

Please note that the deadline for submitting abstracts is 10 January 2011.

Hope to see you in Vienna!

Best regards,


G2.2:  The Global Geodetic Observing System: Tying and Integrating Geodetic Techniques for Research and Applications

IAG's Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) provides the means for integrating ground- and spaced-based observations of geodetic techniques. Nowadays, large inter-technique discrepancies are seen in combinations and they reflect the presence of errors whose nature and origin are not well understood. Modernization of geodetic infrastructures and homogeneous processing of geodetic data are essential to reduce such discrepancies and support consistent observation of Earth's time-variable surface geometry (including ocean and ice surfaces), ocean currents, mass and volume changes. This session is a forum to discuss integration of geodetic techniques, the actual discrepancies highlighted by the combinations, their possible causes and corrections, as well as novel plans and strategies for development of infrastructures and their application to Earth's surface monitoring.
