IVS articles of interest: August 2023

Courtesy of Nlingi Habana (thanks!). Glomsda, et al. (2023): Effects of Non-tidal Loading Applied in VLBI-only Terrestrial Reference Frames https://doi.org/10.1007/s00190-023-01766-6 “We investigate the impact of the reduction of non-tidal loading (NTL) in the computation of secular terrestrial reference frames (TRFs) from Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observations. We make use of [corresponding site displacement] data, […]

NEW FEATURE! IVS articles of interest: June 2023

This month’s IVS-related articles (courtesy of Nlingi Habana: thank you!): Pakize, et al. (2023): “On the improvement of the sensitivity levels of VLBI solutions from a combination with GNSS” https://doi.org/10.1016/j.asr.2023.06.021 “The fundamental goal of the quality assessment using the sensitivity is to find out to what level VLBI can detect station displacements in the adjusted […]

TOW 2023

The twelfth biennial IVS Technical Operations Workshop (TOW) was held in May 2023 at MIT Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts. At this year’s workshop were some 64 people representing 15 different countries.The TOW is focused on hands-on training and problem resolution in VLBI operations and is thus geared toward the technical staff members at operational and forthcoming […]
