GNSS for Global Earth Observation: The European coordination action Gfg²
Conference poster, 2012

The Gfgsquared (GfG²) project is an international research related project with focus to the use of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) for Earth Observation in a more general sense. Within the project novel GNSS applications with outstanding social importance are identified. These applications can be classified by the nine Social Benefit Areas (SBA), which address the current crucial problems of mankind: disasters, health, energy, climate, water, weather, ecosystems, agriculture, biodiversity (see We give examples for GNSS applications in the different SBA. For several of these applications, GNSS radio occultation is a key observation technique with several applications in that context.
