GPS-Techniques Applied to Geodesy and Surveying contains the proceedings of an international workshop held in April 1988 at the Technical University in Darmstadt, Germany. It presents a state-of-the-art description of GPS techniques applied to geodesy and surveying with emphasis on monitoring time dependent phenomena. Theoretical, numerical, instrumental and rather general aspects of modern satellite positioning are treated. The articles are easy to read; the book addresses newcomers to the field as well as experts.
