[MZZ42-P07] The Development of Space Geodetic Technologies and The Transformation of the 'Form of Life' of Researchers

*Sho Morishita1 (1.Graduate School of Human Sciences)

Keywords:Artificial Satellite, Geodesy, Research Style

After 1980s, space geodetic technologies drastically changed the environment of researchers. These technologies, such as VLBI, SLR, GPS, SAR, GRACE and GOCE, have enabaled researchers to acquire gravity and deformation data semi-automatically. On the other hand, they allowed resarchers to study without any observations by themselves. In this paper, I will discuss the relationship between the development of observational technologies and the transformation of research style of researchers.
