GNSS Seismogeodesy: Theory and Applications combines GNSS and seismology theory and applications to offer both disciplines the background information needed to combine forces. It explores the opportunities for integrating GNSS and seismometers, as well as applications for earthquake and tsunami early warning applications. The book allows seismologists to better understand how GNSS positions are computed and how they can be combined with seismic data and allows geodesists to better understand how to apply GNSS to monitoring of crustal motion.This book is a valuable reference for researchers and students studying the interdisciplinary connection between GNSS geodesy and strong-motion seismology. It will also be ideal for anyone working on new approaches for monitoring and predicting geologic hazards.

Key Features

  • Bridges the gap for geodesists and seismologists to better understand how their fields can be complementary
  • Offers an interdisciplinary approach to GNSS geodesy and strong-motion seismology, showing how high-precision GNSS positions can be combined with seismic data
  • Covers the applications of seismogeodesy to earthquake early warning (EEW) and tsunami early warning (TEW)
  • Includes algorithms and source code examples, along with links to open-source software and datasets


Researchers in seismology, geodesy, and earthquake prediction; graduate students in geophysics

About the Author

Jianghui Geng

Prof Geng holds a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy from Wuhan University, China, gained in 2004, and graduated with a Ph.D. degree in GPS Geodesy from Nottingham Geospatial Institute, the University of Nottingham, UK in January 2011. Prof Geng then worked as a primary investigator and an enterprise research fellow at University of Nottingham, which was funded by a 12-month grant from EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, UK). From 2012 to 2015, he stayed in San Diego, and held a Green scholar and postdoctoral position at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), University of California San Diego, USA. The project was initially funded by the Cecil H. and M. Green Earth Science Foundation and later supported by a four-year NASA AIST (Advanced Information System Technology) program. Since October of 2015, he has been a full professor in GNSS Geodesy at Wuhan University and was elected as IAG Fellow in 2019.
