The Nordic Geodetic Commission (NKG) organizes the NKG Summer School every four years. This time the theme is "Space Geodesy in Support of Future Autonomous Society".
The aim of the NKG Summer Schools is to give research geodesists in the Nordic and Baltic countries a possibility to listen to and discuss with outstanding specialists from the Nordic countries and Europe about the most recent experiences in the field of geodetic applications and data collection methods.
Aims and scopes
Space geodesy is a vital, but almost invisible, part of many things we take for granted today. It keeps track of reference frames and time, positioning ourselves within a few cm within seconds, helps with health and security, keeps track of our continent’s movements, and consequences of climate change are pinned down to the mm level. We, as geodesists, observe seasonal changes and long-term trends, but what is our role in the future autonomous society?
The NKG Summer School will host a series of talks related to autonomous society and how space geodesy is used within sensors and technology. The topics range from positioning, autonomy, sensor fusion, privacy, safety, to science application within space geodesy.
Talk time: 30 minutes + 15 min for discussion
Students, PhD-students and researchers within the field of geodesy and geosciences.
