!!! December 2015: The All-Russia Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information – World Data Centre (RIHMI-WDC) has closed down WDC – Rockets, Satellites and Earth Rotation (WDC – RSER) since the topics are no longer its priorities. However, the WDS-SC is extremely pleased to learn that the data holdings of WDC – RSER have now become part of the collection of WDC – Meteorology, Obninsk (WDS Regular Member)!!! The World Data Centre for Rockets, Satellite and Rotation of the Earth is located in Obninsk in the All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information World Data Centre (RIHMI-WDC). The task of the Centre is to collect and disseminate meteorological data and products worldwide and especially in Russia. Data are available from RIHMI-WDC site
The Earth Orientation Centre is responsible for monitoring of long-term earth orientation parameters, publications for time dissemination and leap second announcements.
<<<<< ----- !!! The data is in the phase of migration to another system. Therefore the repository is no longer available. This record is out-dated. !!! ----- >>>>> Due to the changes at the individual IGS analysis centers during these years the resulting time series of global geodetic parameters are inhomogeneous and inconsistent. A geophysical interpretation of these long series and the realization of a high-accuracy global reference frame are therefore difficult and questionable. The GPS reprocessing project GPS-PDR (Potsdam Dresden Reprocessing), initiated by TU München and TU Dresden and continued by GFZ Potsdam and TU Dresden, provides selected products of a homogeneously reprocessed global GPS network such as GPS satellite orbits and Earth rotation parameters.
The IERS provides data on Earth orientation, on the International Celestial Reference System/Frame, on the International Terrestrial Reference System/Frame, and on geophysical fluids. It maintains also Conventions containing models, constants and standards.
The World Data Centre for Meteorology is located in Obninsk in the All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information World Data Centre (RIHMI-WDC). The task of the Centre is to collect and disseminate meteorological data and products worldwide and especially in Russia. The information basis of the Centre is updated on regular basis from various sources including the bilateral data exchange with the World Data Centre for Meteorology in Ashville, North Carolina, USA. The data holdings of WDC – Rockets, Satellites and Earth Rotation (WDC RSER) have become, in December 2015, part of the collection of WDC – Meteorology, Obninsk
The EUROLAS Data Center (EDC) is one of the two data centers of the International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS). It collects, archives and distributes tracking data, predictions and other tracking relevant information from the global SLR network. Additionally EDC holds a mirror of the official Web-Pages of the ILRS at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). And as result of the activities of the Analysis Working Group (AWG) of the ILRS, DGFI has been selected as analysis centers (AC) and as backup combination center (CC). This task includes weekly processing of SLR observations to LAGEOS-1/2 and ETALON-1/2 to compute station coordinates and earth orientation parameters. Additionally the combination of SLR solutions from the various analysis centres to a combinerd ILRS SLR solution.
The IGS global system of satellite tracking stations, Data Centers, and Analysis Centers puts high-quality GPS data and data products on line in near real time to meet the objectives of a wide range of scientific and engineering applications and studies. The IGS collects, archives, and distributes GPS observation data sets of sufficient accuracy to satisfy the objectives of a wide range of applications and experimentation. These data sets are used by the IGS to generate the data products mentioned above which are made available to interested users through the Internet. In particular, the accuracies of IGS products are sufficient for the improvement and extension of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF), the monitoring of solid Earth deformations, the monitoring of Earth rotation and variations in the liquid Earth (sea level, ice-sheets, etc.), for scientific satellite orbit determinations, ionosphere monitoring, and recovery of precipitable water vapor measurements.
The twin GRACE satellites were launched on March 17, 2002. Since that time, the GRACE Science Data System (SDS) has produced and distributed estimates of the Earth gravity field on an ongoing basis. These estimates, in conjunction with other data and models, have provided observations of terrestrial water storage changes, ice-mass variations, ocean bottom pressure changes and sea-level variations. This portal, together with PODAAC, is responsible for the distribution of the data and documentation for the GRACE project.
World Data Center for Oceanography serves to store and provide to users data on physical, chemical and dynamical parameters of the global ocean as well as oceanography-related papers and publications, which are either came from other countries through the international exchange or provided to the international exchange by organizations of the Russian Federation
The main function of the GGSP (Galileo Geodetic Service Provider) is to provide a terrestrial reference frame, in the broadest sense of the word, to both the Galileo Core System (GCS) as well as to the Galileo User Segment (all Galileo users). This implies that the GGSP should enable all users of the Galileo System, including the most demanding ones, to access and realise the GTRF with the precision required for their specific application. Furthermore, the GGSP must ensure the proper interfaces to all users of the GTRF, especially the geodetic and scientific user groups. In addition the GGSP must ensure the adherence to the defined standards of all its products. Last but not least the GGSP will play a key role to create awareness of the GTRF and educate users in the usage and realisation of the GTRF.
The POES satellite system offers the advantage of daily global coverage, by making nearly polar orbits 14 times per day approximately 520 miles above the surface of the Earth. The Earth's rotation allows the satellite to see a different view with each orbit, and each satellite provides two complete views of weather around the world each day. NOAA partners with the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) to constantly operate two polar-orbiting satellites – one POES and one European polar-orbiting satellite called Metop. NOAA's Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) carry a suite of instruments that measure the flux of energetic ions and electrons at the altitude of the satellite. This environment varies as a result of solar and geomagnetic activity. Beginning with the NOAA-15 satellite, an upgraded version of the Space Environment Monitor (SEM-2) has been flown.
