About these proceedings
During the last decades, measurements of various geodynamic processes
have gained ever increasing importance. Temporal variations of the
deformation and gravity fields monitored by geodetic measuring techniques
reflect isostatic, tectonic or volcanic processes in the earth’s interior.
Recordings of hydrologic or oceanographic phenomena allow conclusions on
surface processes. This volume reflects the major developments during
recent years in these areas of research.
Most of the papers in this book were presented at the workshop on
"Deformation and Gravity Change: Indicators of Isostasy, Tectonics, Volcanism
and Climate Change", which took place at the Casa de los Volcanes on Lanzarote,
Spain, during March 1-4, 2005. It was jointly organized and supported by the
International Association of Geodesy (IAG), the Spanish Ministry of Education
and Science, the Spanish Council for Scientific Research and the
Cabildo Insular de Lanzarote. The workshop also served as the first meeting
of the members of the IAG Working Group ICCT2 on "Dynamic Theories of Deformation
and Gravity Fields".
