Module content
Auditorium classes:

The law of gravitation, The Newtonian potential of a body (Newtonian potential for bodies of simple geometrical form), Geopotential, level surfaces and plumb lines

Height systems (orthometric, normal, dynamic), gravimetric reductions

Adjustment of level nets, observation equations, unweighted and weighted cases (the method of least squares)

Coordinate transformations, two – dimensional conformal and two – dimensional affine coordinate transformation, statistical inference on validity of transformation parameters

Basics of satellite orbital motion, Kepler’s laws, orbit parameters, perturbations

Global Positioning System (GPS), space segment, control segment, GPS observables and data processing

Geostatistical methods of interpolation (in connection to classes on Advanced Methods of Spatial Analysis), terminology on kriging

  • The proper part of classes is always preceded by a short listening exercise.
