  Information - GD19 Potential Fields in Geodynamics and Geostatics

Event Information
Potential field data have for years been used to constraint and to understand the dynamic processes of the Earth. In particular, density inhomogeneities are one of the main factors controlling Earth’s dynamics at all levels. Thus, the gravity field can be used as one of the principal constraints in geodynamic modeling and understanding the surface tectonics.

In recent years, dedicated satellite missions are either in operation or planned to map from space the static and the temporary parts of the gravity and magnetic fields. These missions yield a unique opportunity to get a snapshot of both fields at an unprecedented level of accuracy.

In our intra-disciplinary symposium we invite contributions, which are focused on the interrelation between the density structure and ongoing tectonic processes at all time and space levels. Furthermore, we invite contributions from geodesy, geophysics and mathematics focusing on general theoretical and methodological aspects of potential fields; from theory to practical applications. Topics of the particular interest are: studies of the Earth’s structure and dynamics from gravity and magnetic data, studies of temporal variations of the gravity field (primarily from GRACE) related to mass transport in the Earth (hydrology, mass balance in polar regions, GIA), gravity and magnetic field modeling at all scales, geophysical inversion and potential field theory.
