Our Geodesy research seeks to define the global water cycle.

We do this directly through determining global and regional sea level change and measuring from space the mass change of the ice sheets.

Indirectly, we do this through measuring and understanding millimetre-level changes in the Earth’s shape using GPS, enabled by improving the accuracy of those geodetic measurements.
