Wilhelm und Else Heraeus Autumn School
Wilhelm und Else Heraeus Autumn School:
Global Gravity Field Modeling from Satellite-to-Satellite Tracking Data
Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
October 4 - 9, 2015
This international autumn school is generously funded by the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung.
It offers the opportunity for PhD students and young researchers to enhance their knowledge in the field of satellite gravimetry. The school will teach different approaches for recovering the Earth’s gravity field from satellite-to-satellite tracking data. The topic is particularly relevant because of the success of GRACE and the upcoming GRACE Follow-On mission. The 5-day program includes morning theory lectures on core topics taught by international experts on the field, as well as intensive afternoon computer exercises in groups on gravity field determination. Evening talks will highlight the latest progress in space geodesy and sensor systems as well as relativistic geodesy.
The working language of the Autumn School will be English.
The application deadline was on July 31, 2015.
