International workshop on
GNSS Remote Sensing for Future Missions and Sciences
August 7-9, 2011, Shanghai, China

Background & Objectives
    The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) has been widely used in navigation, positioning and geoscience applications. Recently, the versatile refracted, reflected and scattered signals of GNSS have been successfully demonstrated to sound the atmosphere and ionosphere, ocean, land surfaces (including soil moisture) and the cryosphere as a new remote sensing tool. With the further improvement of the next generation multi-frequency GNSS systems and receivers and new space-based instruments utilizing GNSS reflections and refractions, new scientific applications of GNSS are expected in various environment remote sensing fields in the near future.

    The international workshop on "GNSS Remote Sensing for Future Missions and Sciences" will be a forum for assessing current ability and presenting recent results and future developments as well as looking for new collaboration opportunities, joint nanosatellite experiments and missions using GNSS refractometry, reflectometry and scatterometry, e.g., atmospheric and ionospheric sounding using ground and space-borne GPS measurements (CHAMP, GRACE, COSMIC, MetOp, TerraSAR-X, OceanSat-2...), GNSS reflectometry (GNSS-R) in ocean altimetry, and soil moisture and ice/snow status as well as geohazards monitoring/warning (e.g., Hurricane, Typhoon, Tsunami and Earthquake...).
