Dear colleagues:

This is excellent news!   The Global Geodetic Observing System
(GGOS), the key effort of the International Association of Geodesy
(IAG) is fully accepted as a member of the Integrated Global
Observing Strategy (IGOS).

And invited to prepare a theme, 'Earth System Dynamics'.

Best regards to to all for this collective effort, and certainly much
work ahead as the theme will be developed.

Thanks to Markus Rothacher and Hans-Peter Plag for an excellent
outcome this week, preceded by significant effort over the past
years, and with many thanks as well to the first GGOS Chair, Prof.
Chris Reigber.
