Roelof Rietbroek is a post-doc researcher at the university of Bonn in Germany, and is currently the early career scientist representative of the EGU. Main research topics include, but are not limited to, sea level, time-variable gravity, Earth surface loading, and reference system issues ( i.e. geocenter motion). To this means, geodetic datasets from spaceborne gravimetry, altimetry and GPS networks are used and combined while keeping an eye on consistency.

Virtually all of my colleagues were quite sentimental about this since it was published as a so-called ‘Pixi-book’. And Pixi-books, as I learned, are the de facto story books in Germany to explai ...[Read More]

Welcome to the official blog of the geodesy division of the European Geoscience Union. Hosted by the EGU (thanks for that!), the blog is currently being brought into life by the geodesy division presidents and myself. Of course, anyone who has even the slightest curiosity towards geodesy is happily invited to pay us a regular visit. To stigmatize right away, most geodesists will probably be, eithe ...[Read More]
