In the nationwide German geoscientific examine and improvement programme "GEOTECHNOLOGIEN", funded by way of the Federal Ministry of schooling and study (BMBF) and the German examine beginning (DFG), the learn subject "Observation of the approach Earth from house" was once chosen as one among thirteen key parts during this programme. throughout the first learn part for this subject from 2002 to 2004 six initiatives have been complete protecting Earth gravity box and Earth rotation learn. those six initiatives are on the topic of the information exploitation and coaching of research ideas for the gravity box satellite tv for pc missions CHAMP, GRACE and GOCE, to the combination of geodetic commentary thoughts for a person centre in the overseas Earth Rotation provider and to advancements in commentary and research recommendations for airborne gravimetry and ring lasers. This booklet presents an in depth precis of the got effects, that are suitable for a wide clinical neighborhood operating in gravity box and Earth rotation learn.

1984; Calais and Minster, 1996). Hereafter earthquakes may cause pressure waves that propagate upward and may generate so-called ”Travelling Ionospheric Disturbances” (TID’s) in the ionosphere. Since the atmospheric density decreases almost exponentially with altitude, energy conservation implies that the wave amplitude also increases exponentially. Such amplification of the waves can reach a factor of 105 to 106 . Due to the absorption and acoustic cut-off, the atmosphere filters the acoustic waves.

In contrast to (reduced) dynamic orbits, which depend on a model, kinematic orbits are generated purely 34 Reubelt et al. from the geometric information of GPS phase-observations and pseudoranges. Kinematic orbits thus are not as smooth as (reduced) dynamic orbits and may contain data gaps, outliers and jumps, as visible in Fig. 2d. While the former two phenomena are mainly caused by an insufficient number of observed GPS satellites or a bad satellite-constellation, the latter can be assigned to a changing GPS-constellation.
