The German research satellite CHAMP had been launched in summer 2000. Its modern instruments and near Earth orbit allow for the first time to collect data of the gravitational and magnetic fields and in addition to sound out the atmosphere and ionosphere by using GPS techniques. The book is the result of the first meeting of the international CHAMP research groups gathering 18 months later at the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam. Besides technical information the volume offers a comprehensive overview over the use of CHAMP data for Earth System Research in the fields of Geodesy, Geophysics and Meteorology.
From the reviews: "This manuscript is a compilation of selected presentations from the First CHAMP Science Meeting ! . it can be recommended for advanced graduate students or for professional in the relevant areas of specialty. The organization into the three separate sections makes the material easily accessible to specialist from the three separate areas. ! Overall, I found the material well prepared and a very interesting presentation of the remarkable accomplishments of the CHAMP mission." (Prof-Dr-Ing. Byron Tapley, Journal of Geodesy, Vol. 77, 2004)
