Ocean tide and atmospheric loading
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2002
We describe the ingredients of an automatic service for the dissemination of ocean tide loading coefficients and the considerations that led to the solution employed. The paper reviews the surface loading problem, methods for computation and especially the improvement of coastline resolution for accurate representation of coastal loads. We finally compare the loading results based on several ocean tide models with coefficients estimated from VLBI observations.
