Dear colleagues,


We draw your attention to this special session of the 2010 AGU Fall Meeting:


G07: Estimating the Accuracy of Geodetic Measurements

Conveners: M. Van Camp (Royal Observatory of Belgium), E. Calais (Purdue
U.), J. Henton (Natural Resources Canada), O. de Viron (U. Denis Diderot&


Solicited talks:

-Richard Gross (NASA-JPL)

-Jim Ray (NOAA-National Geodetic Survey)

-Paul Tregoning (Australian National University)

-Tim Wright (University of Leeds)


Session description:

Geodesy is always struggling to increase the measurement precision, but
estimating what is the accuracy of the obtained numbers - and what this

accuracy means exactly - is challenging. This can be done e.g. by analyzing
the space/time signature of the noise in a quiet area, or by comparing the
data to

(an)other determination(s)/model(s) of the same signal. Contributions are
solicited, dealing with the estimation of the accuracy of an isolated value
(for instance a single absolute gravity measurement at a given location), a
time series or a spatial patterns, acquired by land based - or space -
geodetic measurements (field gravimetry, levelling, GPS, SLR, VLBI, InSAR,
altimetry or gravity missions as GRACE, GOCE,...).


Abstract submissions are scheduled to open on 21 July and close on 2
September.  For more information visit the AGU website:



We are looking forward to meeting you,


M. Van Camp, E. Calais, J. Henton, O. de Viron
