  Information - G7 GNSS new capabilities for geosciences

Event Information
The variety of available and upcoming GNSS and Regional Overlay Systems will offer many exciting opportunities and challenges in the field of geosciences in the next decade.
This session will address on the one hand technical aspects of potential new systems like the Chinese COMPASS and the Japanese QZSS as well as news from the GPS and GLONASS upgrade programs and the status of GALILEO.

On the other hand we encourage contributions to geoscience and metrology which propose new applications based on the already available GNSS- signals (e.g. GNSS-reflectometry , GNSS radio occultations , GNSS -time transfer ,..) and contributions dealing with geoscientific applications based on the improved availability and the new signals offered by the above mentioned systems within the upcoming 5-10 years (e.g. GNSS atmosphere tomography ,.).
In this context we also encourage discussions on the contributions of GNSS to international geosciences services, organizations and programmes including but not limited to IGS and especially to the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS).
