The medal lecture with the title "GPS Can't Do That, Can It?" by Kristine M. Larson will be presented as part of the session GI0.1
A short summary:
How building a GPS seismometer led to the development of GPS snow, soil moisture, vegetation, and tide gauge sensors. In this talk the medalist will describe how her team estimate soil moisture, snow depth, snow water equivalent, vegetation water content, and sea level from GPS data. She will also show some new work she has been doing using GPS signals to detect ash in volcanic plumes.
