GPS/ Beidou/ GNSS Satellite Positioning and Navigation and Earth Observation

The 7-day Croucher Summer Course 2018 will provide an excellent opportunity for summer course participants to learn the latest research outcomes from internationally distinguished scholars. It will be an ideal place for all participants to broaden their horizon, diversify research interests, enhance their scholarly communications, and reach out social network. 

Change is the only constant phenomenon on this planet. The ecosystems of this planet where we are living in undergo constantly changes in temporal and spatial domains. The ecosystems become more fragile than before as evidenced by the occurrence and observation of many more unusual phenomena such as global warming, sea level rising, extreme weather, earthquakes and natural disasters, etc. The ecosystems changes and dynamics of our planet need to be closely and precisely measured and monitored.

The modern GPS/BeiDou/GNSS and Earth Observation Systems (EOS) offer an unprecedented level of capability to deliver PNaVT (Positioning, Navigation, Velocity and Timing) and observation information, which can be used to precisely measure and record this planet’s dynamic change in a well defined space and time reference system, from both ground-based and space-satellite-based viewpoints. 

Postgraduates (MSc and PhD) students, Postdoc, and young faculty at universities and research organisations from all over the world who are interested in this Croucher Summer Course 2018 can register and become participants.
