IERS Working Group on Site Survey and Co-location

This IERS Working Group will revise the state of the art of local ties surveying and computation, set guidelines and support on field operations wherever needed. A major scientific challenge is to investigate the sources of the biases stemming from the combinations of technique specific frames and tie vectors estimated with terrestrial observations. Further details can be found in the Not barrier-free file. WG Charter (PDF, 14KB).
