Chapter
The International DORIS Service (IDS) was created in 2003 under the umbrella of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) to foster scientific research related to the French DORIS tracking system and to deliver scientific products, mostly related to the International Earth rotation and Reference systems Service (IERS). We first present some ge...
Chapter
While accuracy of tracking station coordinates is of key importance for Precise Orbit Determination (POD) for altimeter satellites, reliability and operationality are also of great concern. In particular, while recent ITRF realizations should be the most accurate at the time of their computation, they cannot be directly used by the POD groups for o...
Article
Analysis of DORIS stations positions time series from IDS combined solution over time period 2000-2012 has revealed discontinuities linked not with geophysical phenomenon, but correlated with beacons frequency shifts. This result was the consequence of assuming the nominal frequency in the measurement model, and not accounting for beacon frequency...

The study presented here aims to assess the capabilities and the limits of the use of the GOCE geoid to improve the shelf and coastal ocean low frequency circulations. The approach consists in using advanced data assimilation techniques (namely, the Ensemble Kalman Filter analysis kernel from the SEQUOIA-BELUGA data assimilation platform – De Mey,...
Article
The Least-squares collocation (LSC) method is commonly used in geodesy, but generally associated with globally supported covariance functions, i.e. with dense covariance matrices. We consider locally supported radial covariance functions, which yield sparse covariance matrices. Having many zero entries in the covariance matrice can both greatly red...

We show that the ionosphere, as monitored by the dual frequency altimeter of the Jason-1 and Topex satellites, is strongly perturbed above the tsunami wave front generated by the Sumatra earthquake of December 26th, 2004. This perturbation is observed by both Topex and Jason-1, between 2h55 and 3h05 TU and leads to instabilities in the TEC estimate...
Article
The GOCE (Global Ocean Circulation Explorer) satellite mission, scheduled for launch in 2005, is designed to map out the Earth's gravity field to high accuracy on a global scale over a nominal lifetime of 2 years. Changes in the gravity field are caused by the redistribution of mass within the Earth and on or above its surface. Since GOCE will fly...
Article
When harmonic spherical splines are used to interpolate and predict discretely given data we are confronted with the problem of solving symmetric positive definite systems involving as many equations as the number of data. Due to harmonicity, these systems are dense and thus iterative methods should be preferred to direct ones for large data sets....
Chapter
Detailed scientific data processing using the space-wise approach. Summary The space-wise approach may be implemented using an integration approach or an optimal estimation approach, Least Squares Collocation (LSC). The latter method can at present only be used on limited data sets, such as data with in limited region, or on data which has been ass...
Chapter
The software elements able to produce GOCE products using either Least Squares Collocation (LSC) or the Integration approach are described. The software should be made available using a distribution system and the quality standards developed in the EU project MANICORAL. A number of problems remain unsolved, and require further investigations and so...
