Surveying Research GroupThe Surveying Research Group is conducting research in photogrammetry and geodesy. The group has been carrying out photogrammetric research since the 1980s into a variety of applications of close-range photogrammetry, for engineering, topographic, biological, medical, and forensic studies.
Geodetic research interests lie in the use of geodetic satellite techniques, mainly related to satellite altimetry and gravimetry, for monitoring and understanding physical ocean processes. For these techniques, satellite altimetry is an established technique for observing the ocean surface. Satellite gravimetry is complementary to satellite altimetry aimed at measuring temporal changes of gravity caused by mass redistribution in the Earth (e.g., GRACE mission) and improving the Earth's static gravity field and geoid (e.g., GOCE mission). The surveying group has conducted internationally recognised geodetic research into observing and determining variations in sea level, ocean mass and ocean dynamics
