About this book

 

In the summer of 2000 the German geo-research satellite CHAMP was launched into orbit. Its innovative payload arrangement and the low intial orbit allow CHAMP to simultaneously collect and almost continuously analyse precise data relating to gravity and magnetic fields at low altitude. In addition to this CHAMP also measures the neutral atmosphere and ionosphere using GPS techniques.

Eighteen months after the launch, CHAMP research groups from all over the world met at the Geo-Forschungs-Zentrum in Potsdam for an initial exchange of experiences and results. The main outcome of this user meeting is summarized in this volume. Apart from technical information about the mission, the book offers a comprehensive insight into the present status of CHAMP data exploitation for Earth system research and practical applications in geodesy, geophysics and meteorology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This manuscript is a compilation of selected presentations from the First CHAMP Science Meeting … . it can be recommended for advanced graduate students or for professional in the relevant areas of specialty. The organization into the three separate sections makes the material easily accessible to specialist from the three separate areas. … Overall, I found the material well prepared and a very interesting presentation of the remarkable accomplishments of the CHAMP mission." (Prof-Dr-Ing. Byron Tapley, Journal of Geodesy, Vol. 77, 2004)
