Recent Advances in Scientific Application of GNSS Array Data

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to this special issue on “Recent Advances in Scientific Application of GNSS Array Data”.

A quarter century has passed since the Japanese nationwide permanent GNSS array (GEONET) started its operation in 1996. GEONET and other GNSS arrays in other countries have had significant contributions in various fields of geosciences through defining and maintaining geodetic reference frame and monitoring crustal movements, ground surface reflections, tropospheric delays, and ionospheric perturbations. These observations have facilitated our understanding of various dynamic phenomena on the Earth such as earthquake source processes, mantle flows, volcanic activities, hydrologic/atmospheric changes, and dynamics of the ionosphere. New approaches to deal with GNSS array data have been incessantly developed and applied to a variety of pure and applied geoscience issues. This special issue is intended to gather state-of-the-art researches using GNSS array data. Original research papers dealing with GNSS array data analysis to better understand various dynamic processes of the Earth and those present new approaches of GNSS array data are welcomed.
