Welcome to the Geodesy Research Group homepage !
Our group focus on developing novel scientific and engineering applications by using a variety of satellite-based geodetic techniques, including
- Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) for high-precision (i.e., centimeter-level) positioning for both static and kinematic applications (i.e., real-time kinematic positioning, reference frame realization, crustal deformation modeling, infrastructure deformation monitoring, etc.)
- Satellite Gravimetry (i.e., GRACE, GRACE Follow-on) for understanding Earth system changes (i.e., water storage changes, ice sheet changes, earthquake deformations, etc.).
- Satellite Altimetry for determining ice-sheet and ocean surface elevations.
We also focus on developing new methodologies for the combination of observations from multiple ground-based and satellite-based sensors.
Opportunities: we are always looking for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with a background in geodesy, physics, geophysics, engineering, or mathematics who are interested in satellite geodesy and its scientific/engineering applications. If you are interested in joining our group at the Ohio State University, please contact Dr. Lei Wang.
