Dear Colleagues

We would like to draw your attention to the special session G05 at  
the May 22-27, 2007 Spring AGU 2007 meeting in Acapulco, titled  
"Large Scale Geodetic Networks for Science, Hazard Monitoring, and  
Infrastructure". We invite those of you with new and related results  
to submit one or more abstracts.

This session will focus on the development of networks of geodetic,  
gravimetric, meteorological, seismic, and borehole and laser strain,  
sensors for "ultra broadband" observatories, and the use of data from  
those networks to study a range of geophysical problems. Geophysical  
communities around the globe are implementing networks of geodetic,  
gravimetric, meteorological, seismic, borehole and laser strain  
sensors for "ultra broadband" observatories. Often operated in close  
cooperation with international scientific organizations, such as the  
International GNSS Service (IGS) and new efforts such as the GGOS  
(Global Geodetic Observing System of the International Association of  
Geodesy), these networks can have broad impact. GPS, for example, not  
only provides valuable data for geodetic and atmospheric scientific  
research and hazards monitoring, but also benefits surveying and  
navigation communities. This session will highlight existing and  
planned networks; routine and higher order data products; data  
product access and display tools; integrated science using multiple  
instruments; applications of real-time, high-rate geodetic data  
including volcanic, earthquake, and tsunami warning and GPS  
seismology; geoinformatics developments; new scientific discoveries,  
technological advancements, and educational opportunities in large- 
scale, multi-use, multi-institutional, regional geophysical networks  
in South, Central and North America.

Abstracts are due by March 1, 2007.  Abstract submission information  
can be found at:

We look forward to seeing you in Acapulco.
