Periodic station motion in Gothenburg observed with GPS - possibily related to hydrological phenomena?
Book chapter, 2009

We analyze several years of GPS data recorded with roof-top stations in Gothenburg (Sweden) and permanent stations of the Swedish national reference network in the larger Gothenburg region. The derived station positions of several of the roof-top stations in Gothenburg reveal periodic horizontal motions with amplitudes of several millimeters and periodic vertical motions with amplitudes of up to 1.5 mm. The observed motions have primarily an annual period. We compare the GPS-derived station motions with hydrological information (ground water and river level) and meteorological information (air temperature and pressure). The results indicate that the GPS-detected motions might be related to hydrological phenomena.
