The investigation of the kinematics and dynamics of the
Earth has achieved remarkable progresses in the last decades in understanding and explaining a large variety of geo-
dynamical, geophysical and geological phenomena. The impact of increasingly precise geodetic space-time measurements and analyses have much contributed to these results.
Papers presented atthe 7th International Symposium on
Geodesy and Physics of the Earth focus onfour topics:
- Present Day Tectonic Motions
- Gravity Field and its Variation
- Earth Rotation Characteristics
- International Programs for Geodesy and Geodynamics
Researchers and advanced students may use this volume as a comprehensive reference of concepts, techniques and results.
