New GNSS algorithms and techniques for earth observation

This 6-day summer course will provide an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students, early career researchers, or industrial R&D professionals to learn from internationally distinguished scholars on the leading edge of earth observation, ionosphere monitoring and space weather.

With global navigational satellite systems and earth observation being increasingly recognised as among the fastest growing industries in the world, it is crucial to increase understanding of the latest GNSS algorithms and techniques for earth observation.

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.

This course is limited to 60 students and is aimed at in-school researchers (PhD/MSc students, Postdoc), industrial R&D engineers/researchers/professionals, and government professional officers who will be given high priority in registration.

Language: All lectures will be given in English.
