Dear Colleagues,

We draw your attention to the following session at the December (Fall) 2010 AGU meeting in San Francisco.

G17: Geophysical Remote Sensing With Current And Future Global Navigation Satellite Systems

Description: New open signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) - modernized US GPS, Russian GLONASS and the planned European Galileo and Chinese COMPASS - provide unprecedented opportunity for novel geophysical remote sensing approaches. Reflected and scattered L-band signals measure surface topography of oceans and cryosphere, sea surface roughness, surface permittivity and soil moisture. GNSS radio occultations can provide much improved atmospheric and ionospheric retrievals, including penetration into the atmospheric boundary layer. We encourage submissions on novel GNSS remote sensing approaches with current and future systems, including scientific results, experimental data and instruments.

Sponsors: Geodesy, Atmospheric Sciences, Cryosphere, Ocean Sciences, SPA-Aeronomy

Conveners: Anthony J. Mannucci (1) Estel Cardellach (2) Chi Ao (1)

(1) Jet Propulsion Laboratory
