Rüdiger Haas




Rüdiger Haas is professor for space geodesy and research group leader for the research group on Space Geodesy and Geodynamics. He is responsible for the geodetic VLBI activities at the Onsala Space Observatory. Rüdiger’s reseach work deals with space geodesy and global geophysical phenomena, as e.g., Earth rotation, global reference frames, change in atmospheric water vapour, sea level measurements. Rüdiger is the scientific leader of the Onsala twin telescope project, chair of the European VLBI Group for Geodesy and Astrometry (EVGA) and member of the directing board of the International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS).

Learn how to measure and monitor the Earth’s water and ice masses to deepen your understanding of global change. Global warming. Rising sea levels. Droughts. Flooding. The melting of the polar ice caps. In this energy and earth science course, you will learn how continental water and ice masses are measured and monitored through remote sensing. You will learn how water and mass transport can be traced, and how this relates to the Earth‘s complex system. We will also discuss global change and its indicators, and why experts have clear evidence that this change is actually taking place. By the end of this course, you will understand the importance of preserving the planet and observing the Earth’s oceans.
