Topic outline

  • Welcome to the course Advanced Geodesy!

    Topics for year 2022 are physical geodesy, space geodesy and geodetic applications.

    The lectures will be on campus (Otakaari 4, 202), with an option for zoom and recorded lecture. We will test the different options on the first week and find the optimal solution also for remote studies.
