Thomas Hobiger




Thomas Hobiger is Associate Professor for Space Geodesy. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in geodesy and geophysics from the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He spent then 8 years at a Japanese research institute, before moving to Chalmers in 2014. He plays an active role in the development of the next-generation space-geodetic systems (in particular VLBI and GNSS) and processing tools for such techniques. He is interested in VLBI, GNSS, Earth rotation, sea-level change and GNSS-R, software-defined radio, reference frames, high-performance computing, propagation of radio waves, and time and frequency transfer.

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.
