Determination of deformation parameters at Józefosław Astrogeodetic Observatory
- Jerzy Rogowski
Astrogeodetic Observatory in Józefosław which belongs to the Institute of Geodesy and Geodetic Astronomy of the Warsaw University of Technology started to permanent observations in 1958. First of them was time service started in February 1958, coordinated by BIH. From 1959 astrometrical latitude measurements have been done with aim to determine the parameters of the Earth rotation. In 1991 the Observatory was joined to the International GPS Service for Geodynamics (IGS) and started to operate as a permanent one in 1993. There have been performed many observations and scientific researches, such as: GPS in the frame of IGS/IGLOS/EUREF; tidal observations; absolute gravity measurements; changes of the vertical, based on the gravimetric measurements; astrometric observations and meteorology. Moreover studies on RTK and DGPS measurements using mobile phone for data transmission are performed since 1998. WUT EUREF Local Analysis Centre, one of the 16 Local Analysis Centres acting in Europe, is a very important part of the Observatory. The Centre makes continuous service of one-week solution in the frame of EUREF network processes national and international GPS campaigns (CEGRN, EXTENDED SAGET etc.), models ionosphere and troposphere parameters, compute tidal components and changes of the vertical according to astrometric and gravimetric measurements. This paper presents history and current state of the art of the Observatory's activities.
