2. ICCC Workshop 2023


The second workshop of the Inter-Commission Committee on Geodesy for Climate Research (ICCC) of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) will take place on

March 28-30, 2023

as an online event.

The abstract submission and registration is now open, see end of page.

We welcome presentations on all topics related to the use of geodetic observations for climate science!

The growing data record from numerous geodetic observation techniques (GNSS station observations, satellite radio occultation and reflectometry, satellite gravimetry, satellite altimetry, InSAR, VLBI, GNSS controlled tide gauges, etc) provides a new quantitative view on various variables that are relevant for climate research, such as tropospheric water vapor, thermospheric neutral density, terrestrial water storage, ice sheet and glacier mass, sea level, sea surface winds, ocean waves, subsurface and surface currents, and sea ice extent and thickness. Geodetic observables are often compared with geophysical models, which helps to explain observations, and may potentially be used to evaluate and improve simulations through techniques such as data assimilation.

This workshop intends to:

1)    Highlight the potential of geodesy for climate research by showcasing and discussing climate-related studies making use of geodetic observations.

2)    Bring together geodetic and climate scientists to facilitate exchange of their experience and possibly establish a mutual cooperation.


Format of the workshop:

  • We will have 2x two hours of live meeting per day, one slot from 8-10 a.m. CEST (UTC+2) and one slot from 5-7 p.m CEST (UTC+2). 
  • We will schedule both oral and poster sessions.
  • Oral presentations will be ~10 minutes long.
  • Poster sessions will offer individual live discussions and additional asynchronuos chat options.
  • All presentations will be made available to participants before the meeting to facilitate asynchronous viewing.
  • There will be the opportunity to ask questions in live meetings and to discuss with fellow scientists via chat channels.

Registration and abstract submission:

  • Abstracts can be submitted until  February 15th, 2023 via the following link (presenting author is automatically registered for the meeting): Abstract submission (including registration)
  • If you would like to participate without presenting, please register by March 21, 2023 via the following link: Registration only
  • Abstract submission and participation in the workshop are free of charge!
