[M-TT46] New phase of GPS/GNSS application as an integrated earth observation system

Mon. May 27, 2019 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM 106 (1F)

convener:Yoshinori Shoji(The Second Laboratory of Meteorological Satellite and Observation System Research Department, Meteorological Research Institute), Kaoru Ichikawa(Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University), Yusaku Ohta(Research Center for Prediction of Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions, Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University), Takuya Tsugawa(National Institute of Information and Communications Technology), Chairperson:Yoshinori Shoji(Meteorological Research Institute)

GNSS has become a fundamental tool for studies on atmosphere, ionosphere, and solid earth. Ground and space-based GNSS measurements have operationally contributed to improve global and regional NWP since 2006. In recent years, studies utilizing reflected GNSS signals to derive altimetric height, surface roughness, soil moisture, snow depth, humidity or vegetation index have been evolving. Ocean-platform GNSS observations have been demonstrating their capability of real-time monitoring of maritime water vapor as well as sea level. Increasing observations provided through Multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, GALILEO, QZSS etc.) enhances capability of the GNSS as an integrated earth observation system.
The purpose of this session is to share the latest development of GNSS researches on monitoring the earth system and to stimulate synergetic interdisciplinary studies. Contributions on atmosphere (troposphere and ionosphere) studies, reflectometry (GNSS-R), and integrations of different observation techniques like GNSS-Acoustic measurement to monitor ocean floor positioning are welcome.

4:45 PM - 5:00 PM
