Large-scale dimensional measurements for geodesy

Project: EU project

Project Details

Description

A robust and accurate frame of reference for reliable geodetic monitoring.

Novel scientific concepts and field-capable devices are needed for SI-traceable large-scale dimensional measurements, e.g. in monitoring changes in sea level, retreating ice sheets and long-term tectonic motion.

Project develops a robust and accurate frame of reference for reliable geodetic monitoring.

VTT MIKES develops a field-capable spectroscopic long-range thermometer, since accurate air temperature measurements are crucial in improving distance measurement uncertainty.
