News includes external links to coverage of geodesy, UNAVCO, and related activities that have been featured in the public domain. The links focus on coverage via press releases, announcements, news articles, and other media sources. In general, the links refer to work where UNAVCO, EarthScope, or UNAVCO Community Members are mentioned. The chronological listing is far from comprehensive, but provides a sample of the discoveries, advances, and benefits of geodesy and geodetic-related work to humankind and planet Earth.
What in the world is geodesy? Geodesy is the study of Earth’s shape, gravity field, and rotation. Geodetic research defines the terrestrial reference frame. Geodetic techniques are used to quantify changes in the Earth’s surface and subsurface; ice sheets and glaciers; and oceans and atmosphere. Geodesy’s broader benefits include help with preparedness and mitigation of hazards and foundational support for space-based operations, navigation, communications, surveying, resource management, and national security. If you would like to know more about geodesy or GPS, please consider the UNAVCO educational resources listed on the left panel or the external links below.
