GNSS session at AGU Fall Meeting 2023

3 July 2023

Our colleagues at SONEL have asked us to pass on this announcement about a session at this year's AGU 2023 Fall Meeting in San Francisco, December:

We are pleased to announce that the session entitled "Integration of GNSS into Water Level Observation Networks: Priorities, Technologies, and Benefits" will be part of the AGU 2023 Fall Meeting that will be held in San Francisco (USA) next December. We encourage you to consider submitting an abstract to this focused session, and to forward this announcement to others with an interest in this topic.

Full session details and an abstract submission link are available at the AGU website. The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, 2 August 2023 at 23:59 EDT.

AGU Session G018 - Integration of GNSS into Water Level Observation Networks: Priorities, Technologies, and Benefits
Tide and water level station records are some of the longest and most meticulously-kept earth observation records, but these data were historically only tied to local staffs or nearby benchmarks on land. Integration of GNSS at these stations not only provides efficiencies in operational station maintenance cycles, but also adds value to these long-term water level records by connecting them to national and global reference frames and enabling the quantification of relative sea level trend components. Despite the recognized value of fusing these oceanographic and geodetic tools, only a subset of global water level stations fully leverage GNSS. This session invites the community to share new research that demonstrates the value of GNSS-linked or GNSS-enabled water level stations, exchange knowledge about best practices for instrumentation, and showcase innovative technologies or methodologies that will advance reliable, effective, and informed use of GNSS in water level observation networks.
