Objectives

The main objectives of Focus Area Geodetic Space Weather Research can be formulated as

  • Improvement of positioning and navigation by developing high-precision and high-resolution models of the electron density,
  • Improvement of orbit determination (satellites and space debris) by developing high-precision and high-resolution thermospheric drag models.

Further statements:

  • We understand these objectives with respect to both fundamental research and practical applications
  • Due to fundamental research the running time of Focus Area 4 has to be fixed to a much longer time span than the IAG period of four years
  • Results, models and applications, in particular the developed ionosphere and thermosphere models are GGOS products
