Towards GGOS in 2020
This chapter is concerned with the implementation of GGOS, addressing mainly the organizational aspects mentioned in Section.1.3 GGOS monitors and maintains the geometric and gravimetric reference frames, and provides the transformation between these systems with state-of-the-art observational tools. In doing so, GGOS provides the observational basis to, e.g., determine mass transport in the Earth system and thus serves the Earth science community with Earth observations and geodetic products relevant for many studies. The accuracy of, and the consistency between, all GGOS products shall be at the 10–9 level or better.
