This year, a researh fellow from University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Nur Surayatul Atikah Binti Alihan, come to Geodesy Research Group ITB to conduct a research entitled with:
“Estimation of geophysical loading over malaysian region based on GPS observation”
Supervised by, Dr. Ami Hasan Md Din (UTM) and Dr. techn. Dudy D. Wijaya (ITB)
Her research conducted to understand the characteristic of geophysical loading over the Malaysian Region. As we know, geophysical loading, consists mainly by Earth tides loading, Ocean tides loading, Atmospheric pressure loading, and Polar motion loading. By understanding their characteristic, precise coordinate estimation by satellite positioning such as GPS can be enhance.
