International Symposium

Gravity, Geoid and Height Systems 2




The 2nd joint meeting of the International Gravity Field Service and the International Association of Geodesy will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, Sep 17-21, 2018, following the earlier successful symposium GGHS-2016 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The GGHS-2018 symposium aims to bring together, geodesists, geophysicists and space scientists who work with gravity field observations from space, airborne and surface, novel gravity field observation technologies, gravity field modelling, fundamental height systems, gravity networks, and gravity field change observations for climate change and hydrology. The symposium will be structured around 7 science sessions:

1) Current and future satellite gravity missions
2) Global gravity field modelling
3) Local/regional gravity field modelling
4) Absolute, Relative and Airborne Gravity - observations and methods
5) Height systems and vertical datum unification
6) Satellite altimetry and applications
7) Mass transport and climate-relevant processes

The GGHS-2018 venue will at the “Black Diamond”, a new harbour-side exhibition and library building located in the centre of Copenhagen. It is strongly recommend to book accomodation very early, due to other large conventions in the same period.

We are looking forward to host you in Copenhagen,
Rene Forsberg, chair of the LOC
