[Cancelled] Aufgrund des Streiks im Personalverkehr der Deutschen Bahn findet der Vortrag leider nicht statt.

Das Institut INATECH und das Leistungszentrum Nachhaltigkeit Freiburg laden ein zum Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Harald Schuh mit dem Titel "Contribution of Geodesy to Monitoring Climate Change and Natural Hazardsam Dienstag, den 9. Januar 2024 um 17:15 Uhr.

Der Vortrag findet in Präsenz im Raum SR 02-016/18 Faculty of Engineering, Gebäude 101 Georges-Köhler-Allee 101, 79110 Freiburg statt. Im Anschluss wird es einen kleinen Umtrunk geben. 

Precise and stable reference frames play an important role in modern geodesy, as they are required when we want to monitor changes on the Earth such as plate tectonics or global sea level rise. An overview of the various natural hazards and global change phenomena that can be observed by geodetic techniques will be given. Measurements from space geodetic techniques like GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) to local geodetic surveying instruments can be used. Case studies will be presented that document the essential role of precise geodetic data, accurate analysis methods, and realistic mathematical and physical models for a sustainable development of our society.

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Harald Schuh has been Chair of Satellite Geodesy at the Technische Universität Berlin and Director of the Department Geodesy at the Helmholtz-Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences since 2012. He studied geodesy, did his PhD at the University of Bonn and holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy in Sofia. Schuh’s research focuses on Space geodesy, Very Long Baseline Interferometry, Global Navigation Satellite Systems, troposphere, ionosphere, Earth rotation, and interactions in the system Earth. His honors include the Descartes Prize of the European Union, Fellow of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), the Vening Meinesz Medal of the European Geosciences Union, and the Ivan I. Mueller Award for Distinguished Service and Leadership of the AGU Geodesy Section.
