Information - G10 Geodetic observations for the International Polar Year (co-listed in CR)
The International Polar Year 2007/2008 will be a joint effort to determine the present status of the polar regions and to monitor ongoing changes. Interdisciplinary, coordinated research will provide the data and improved models to understand the processes, and to put them into a global context.
Geodetic observations and their interpretation can provide valuable contributions to the goals of the IPY. There is a strong geodetic component in several approved IPY projects like POLENET (Polar Earth Observing Network). These geodetic investigations can not only improve the knowledge on the polar regions, but can also be seen as a strengthening of the polar component of the anticipated "Global Geodetic Observing System" (GGOS) of the International Association of Geodesy.
The session is proposed to present concepts, models and results to investigate the unique geophysical and geodynamic environment of the polar regions with a focus on the interactions of the solid earth with the cryosphere, the oceans and the athmosphere. As observation techniques GNSS and other satellite methods, tide gauge and grvimetry can be addressed.
