Dear All Colleagues

Mass redistribution and transport in the Earth system, including the
atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, cryosphere and the interior of the
solid Earth affect the Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation (the three
pillars of geodesy). Space geodetic techniques, including VLBI, SLR, DORIS,
GNSS, InSAR, LiDAR, ICESat, satellite radar and laser altimetry, satellite
gravimetry (particularly CHAMP/GRACE/GOCE) and GNSS Reflectometry & Radio
Occultation, are capable of measuring and monitoring such small changes
with high accuracy and spatial-temporal resolution. These provide a unique
opportunity to investigate mass transport associated with geodynamics,
natural hazards, and climate change, and to better understand these
processes and their interaction within the Earth system.

This special issue of *Journal of Geodynamics *on “Earth System Observing
and Modelling from Space Geodesy” focuses on assessing current
technological capabilities and presenting recent results of space geodetic
observations and understanding the physical processes and coupling in the
Earth system, and future impacts on climate. Topics include data retrieval
of space geodetic techniques, reference frame, atmospheric-ionospheric
sounding and disturbance, gravity field, crustal deformation and earthquake
geodesy, GIA, Earth rotation, hydrological cycle, ocean circulation, sea
level change, and ice sheet mass balance as well as their coupling in the
Earth system. This special issue consists not only of papers given at the
International Symposium on Space Geodesy and Earth System but also includes
other contributions on this topic that were submitted in response to an
open call for contributions.

All related papers are welcome to submit to Special issue of Journal of
Geodynamics on “Earth System Observing and Modelling from Space Geodesy” via
http://ees.elsevier.com/geod. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly
identified for inclusion into the special issue, authors must select "SI:
Geodetic Earth System" when they reach the "Article Type" step in the
submission process.
