  Information - GD15/GD18 Potential Fields and Geophysical Images in Geostatics and Geodynamics

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

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 papers, which are focused on the interrelation between the density structure and ongoing tectonic processes at all time and space. Furthermore, we invite contributions from geodesy, geophysics and mathematics focusing on general theoretical and methodological aspects of potential fields; from theory to applications. Topics of particular interest are studies of Earth’s geodynamic and tectonic processes from satellite data.
