..Working Group for Geodynamics
..Chair: Martin Lidberg

The raison d'être of this working group:

Key words: geodynamics, crustal motion

Objectives: Geodynamics studies of the deformations of the solid Earth, especially the Earth's crust and gravity field changes caused by these, with a broad range of technologies, including classical positional geodesy, precise levelling, satellite positioning, precise gravimetry, sea level monitoring by tide gauges and satellite altimetry. Often various technologies are co-located for scientific synergy.

The phenomena studied include: postglacial crustal rebound ("land uplift"), plate tectonics, deformations due to tidal, ocean, atmospheric and ice sheet/glacier loading and hydrological effects, and local tectonic and man-made deformations.
