Pioneer for Space Geodesy

Hydro International interviews Reiner Rummel
The field of geodesy is undergoing a revolutionary change. The developments of the last few decades have altered the views and work of professional surveyors, researchers and developers immensely, think of GPS, INSAR but also the Gravity and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission carried out by the European Space Agency. Co-initiator of this mission that measures the gravity field from space, Professor Reiner Rummel, What is your biggest contribution to the science of geodesy? That’s difficult. I think my contribution to the Gravity and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite mission would probably count as the biggest. I was... (read more)

Geodesy on the Water’s Edge

Applications of Accurate Heights in the Coastal Zone
The intertidal zone, where coastal wetlands provide the first buffer to storm energy and sea level rise, has not traditionally been a focus of geodetic surveying. However, the increasing vulnerability of coastlines to environmental change, increasing population densities near the coast, and increasing reliance on coastal goods and services have all increased the need for accurate intertidal elevations. Advances in vertical positioning now enable the application of geodetic tools to the intertidal zone, where centimetre-level changes in elevation can have dramatic consequences on coastal resources. Determining accurate elevations within coastal wetlands improves the understanding of processes affecting wetland dynamics and... (read more)
