The International Terrestrial Reference Frame: Elaboration, Usage and Applications
Convener: Tonie van Dam  | Co-Convener: Zuheir Altamimi

 / Attendance Wed, 15 Apr, 17:30–19:00

The goal of this session is to provide a forum to discuss
preparations for the next International Terrestrial Reference
Frame (ITRF), expected to include data through 2013, as well as
the ITRF usage in Earth sciences and other applications.
Participants can discuss concerns not only related to the
contributing technique services, but also all ITRF uses, ranging
from local, regional to global applications. Contributions are
sought from the individual technique services and various ITRF
users, covering the complete range of topics, such as data
analysis, parameter estimation and correction models. Of special
interest is the evaluation of the impact of loading effects on
individual frames and their combination. Contributions focusing on
identifying and mitigating technique systematic errors are most
welcome, which will hopefully help improve the next ITRF
