Workshop: The Future Shape of a Greenland GNSS Observation Network
Event Type: Conferences and Workshops
When: 24 January 2017 to 25 January 2017
Where: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
We will convene a 1 1/2 day workshop at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in January 2017 (directly following PARCA 2017), with the purpose of defining a path forward for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) observation network in Greenland. There are many means for determining Greenland ice mass loss, but almost all rely on some form of satellite positioning, generally using GNSS or its subset Global Positioning System (GPS). Thus a network of geodetic-quality GNSS receivers is desirable.
Such a network already exists in the form of GNET, a joint US/Danish network of GPS receivers. Existing funding for GNET is drawing to a close, and the future of the network remains uncertain. Thus it is important to bring the various stakeholders and potential users of these data together to define the system requirements and the path forward.
If you are interested in attending, register now! There is no fee for this workshop, and for those in need there is a small amount of travel funding available.
