New microwave radiometers in IGG
05-11-2019
Within the EPOS-PL project (POIR.04.02.00-14-A003/16) two microwave radiometers RPG-HATPRO-G5, supplied by Radiometer Physics GmbH, were purchased. The instruments were installed on the building of the Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Geodesy of the Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences and in the Geodetic-Geophysical Observatory Borowa Góra. RPG-HATPRO series develops microwave radiometers designed for continuous measurement of temperature and humidity profiles in the troposphere, parallely in several selected frequency channels.

ESA Awards
08-09-2019
The 7th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) wah held on September 4-6, 2019 at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. During the plenary session crowning the Colloquium, ESA awarded the best papers presenting groundbreaking research using satellite systems, with particular emphasis on the European Galileo system. As many as three awards went to current and former PhD students and employees from IGiG:
  • MSc. Grzegorz Bury  (PhD Student at IGiG) received an award for the best presentation in the field of Precise Orbit Determination for a paper on developing an analytical "Box-Wing" model of Galileo satellites enabling significant improvement of satellite positioning by elimination of perturbing forces: "Challenges in the modeling of perturbing forces acting on Galileo orbits",
  • Dr Karina Wilgan (in 2012-2017 PhD Student at IGiG) received an award in the field of Remote Sensing: Troposphere and Weather for a paper on troposphere research using unmanned aerial vehicles - drones recording satellite signals: "Quality assessment of tropospheric estimates from GNSS and meteorological observations on a UAV",
  • Dr Krzysztof Sośnica (profesor at IGiG) received an award in the field of Fundamental Physics for a paper on measurements of space-time curvature resulting from general relativity using Galileo satellites: "Measurements of the Galileo orbit geometry deformations caused by the general relativity".

    Best poster award for IGG PhD
    21-05-2019
    Damian Tondaś, a PhD affiliated to IGIG, was awarded a best poster award at "4th Joint International Symposium on Deformation Monitoring", Athens, Greece. The work "Investigation for mining-induced deformation in Upper Silesia Coal Basin with multi-GNSS in Near Real-Time" demonstrate research linked with the integration of high frequency GNSS permanent observations and InSAR in the area of Upper Silesia Coal Basin. The work is supported by EPOS-PL project.

    Special lectures on seismology
    11-04-2019
    We kindly invite you to series of lectures by Prof. Eleftheria Papadimitriou and Prof. Vassilios Karakostas from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Both are professors in seismology at the Geophysics Department. Prof. Karakostas has strong expertise in seismology, seismotectonics, tsunami hazards, statistical seismology, seismic hazard assessment. His series of lectures in IGiG will contain the basic theories and knowledge about Seismic waves, Seismometers, Seismological networks and Seismicity. Prof. Papadimitriou is an expert in long-term earthquake prediction, fault plane solutions and stress patterns. She will present the basics of Stress & Strain, Faults & Fault Plane Solutions, Calculations of stress changes and Global Seismotectonics.
    The lectures are targeted primary for Master and PhD students, but all interested on the subject are also kindly invited. The seminars will held on 16th, 17th and 18th of April from 16:00 in lecture room I-M. The visit of the guests is part of the ERASMUS+ initiative.
