Satellite Gravity and the Geosphere Book Review:

For the past three decades, it has been possible to measure the earth's static gravity from satellites. Such measurements have been used to address many important scientific problems, including the earth's internal structure, and geologically slow processes like mantle convection. In principle, it is possible to resolve the time-varying component of the gravity field by improving the accuracy of satellite gravity measurements. These temporal variations are caused by dynamic processes that change the mass distribution in the earth, oceans, and atmosphere. Acquisition of improved time-varying gravity data would open a new class of important scientific problems to analysis, including crustal motions associated with earthquakes and changes in groundwater levels, ice dynamics, sea-level changes, and atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns. This book evaluates the potential for using satellite technologies to measure the time-varying component of the gravity field and assess the utility of these data for addressing problems of interest to the earth sciences, natural hazards, and resource communities.

Earth System Monitoring Book Review:

Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on the continents and Earth’s poles are land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the need to establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emerging view of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical component of our growing understanding.

Application of Satellite Gravimetry to Mass Transports on a Global Scale and the Tibetan Plateau Book Review:

This thesis provides multidisciplinary perspectives on changes in global mass transports, especially in the global water cycle. It investigates the current time-varying states regarding global sea level, terrestrial water storage, mountain glacier mass and highland crustal deformation, drawing on fifteen years of satellite gravimetry observation to do so. The results reveal tremendous changes in various aspects of the global environment, which are due to both anthropogenic and natural factors. Further, the research presented here sheds new light on underlying connections and mechanisms in the global mass transport system.

Theory of the Earth s Shape Book Review:

Theory of the Earth's Shape considers the physical-mathematical problems raised by the determination of the form of the planet, thereby making a significant contribution to the technological scientific literature in this field. This book is organized into six parts encompassing 29 chapters. The first part, entitled Physical Geodesy, presents the theory of the determination of the gravitational field, in the definition of which preference was given to the method of expansion in spherical harmonics recommended by the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics in establishing the international "Geodetic Reference System 1967". Part II deals with the principal aspects of Ellipsoidal Geodesy, such as the methods of solving the geodetic problems on the reference ellipsoid. Part III considers the main problems associated with Astro-geodetic Triangulation, particularly with the conception of materialization and the necessary measurements as the required adjustment procedures. This part also provides approaches regarding the controlled analysis of angular measurements and the description of some original calculation and measurement methods. Part IV concerns one of the methods of determining the spatial coordinates of the geodetic points in a unitary system, such as the three-dimensional geodesy, which has had more concrete applications since the launching of the Earth's first artificial satellites. Part V describes the methods for determining the terrestrial ellipsoid and the geoid, as well as the conventional methods and the methods of Dynamical Geodesy. Part VI discusses the geodetic methods for the determination of the movements of the Earth's crust, along with an overall examination of the theoretical and practical aspects which in principle constitute the object of such activities.

Gravimetry and Space Techniques Applied to Geodynamics and Ocean Dynamics Book Review:

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 82. The variety of disciplines represented in this volume (including space geodesy, oceanography, geophysics, and celestial mechanics) attest to the interdisciplinary applications of gravimetry and space techniques. The relation to sea level is addressed within some of the papers and the contributions of the techniques to development of global gravity models are discussed. The space technique of satellite altimetry has become a prominent contributor to sea surface topography as well as ocean tide models and determination of gravity, especially in ocean areas. Ocean tides influence the motion of near-Earth satellites and the rotation of the Earth. Modern space geodesy is increasingly relying on the Global Positioning System for measuring geophysical phenomena manifested at the surface through crustal deformations. Furthermore, the geophysical interpretation of gravity anomalies has been facilitated by the introduction of modern techniques. This volume represents only a small "snapshot" of the interdisciplinary research being conducted. Modem space geodesy is one of the common links between the disciplines reflected in this volume. New developments in gravimetry and space techniques will further enhance and foster interdisciplinary work in coming years.
