About these proceedings


The international symposium, "Towards an Integrated Global Geodetic Observing System", held in Munich 5-9 October 1998, analysed the state-of-the-art of geodetic space techniques and looked into the possibility of the establishment of an integrated global observing system. Considering that most geodetic space techniques have reached or approached the one part per billion relative precision level, the question is what their joint and coordinated operation could offer to the study of the Earth system. The symposium was divided into four topics: (1) reference system and datum integration; (2) strength and weakness of space techniques; (3) upcoming gravity field satellite missions; (4) implications for Earth sciences.
