The history of IAPSO

24 April 2019

This year, the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) celebrates its 100th year of existence. To mark this achievement, a special issue of History of Geo- and Space Sciences has been published, featuring papers describing the history of the IUGG and its eight constituent associations.

In particular, a paper describing the history of the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO) entitled "IAPSO: tales from the ocean frontier" contains a section on the creation and development of PSMSL under the remit of IAPSO.

All papers in the issue are open access, and can be found on the special issue webpage.
