Description

GPS and GNSS Technology in Geosciences offers an interdisciplinary approach to applying advances in GPS/GNSS technology for geoscience research and practice. As GPS/GNSS signals can be used to provide useful information about the Earth’s surface characteristics and land surface composition, GPS equipment and services for commercial purposes continues to grow, thus resulting in new expectations and demands. This book provides case studies for a deeper understanding of the operation and principles of widely applied approaches and the benefits of the technology in everyday research and activities.

Key Features

  • Presents processing, methods and techniques of GPS/GNSS implementation that are utilized in in-situ data collection in design and systems analysis
  • Offers an all-inclusive, critical overview of the state-of-the-art in different algorithms and techniques in GPS/GNSS
  • Addresses both theoretical and applied research contributions on the use of this technology in a variety of geoscience disciplines

About the Editor

George Petropoulos

George Petropoulos

Dr. Petropoulos’ research work focuses on exploiting Earth Observation (EO) data alone or synergistically with land surface process models in deriving regional estimates of key state variables of the Earth's energy and water budget, including energy fluxes and soil surface moisture. He is also conducting research on the use of remote sensing technology in obtaining information about the land cover and if changes occurred from either anthropogenic activities (e.g. urbanization, mining activity) or natural hazards (mainly floods and fires). In this framework, he is researching and optimizing new image processing techniques to recently launched EO satellites, with a large part of his work focusing on the development and enhancement of EO-based operational products. As part of this research he is also conducting all-inclusive benchmarking studies to EO products or land surface models, including advanced sensitivity analysis techniques.
