About this book

A description of the theory and mathematical models behind the application of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in geodesy and geodynamics. The mathematical models for GPS measurements are developed in the first half of the book, followed by the description of GPS solutions for geodetic applications on local, regional and global scales.


Reference systems; GPS satellite orbits; propagation of the GPS signals; GPS receivers and the observables; GPS observation equations and positioning concepts; GPS data processing strategies; GPS quality control; GPS carrier phase ambiguity fixing concepts; active GPS control stations; single-site GPS models; short distance GPS models; medium distance GPS measurements; long distance kinematic GPS; the GPS as a tool in global geodynamics; atmospheric models from GPS; the role of GPS in space geodesy.
