Precise Geodetic Infrastructure: National Requirements for a Shared Resource
Committee on Seismology and Geodynamics; Board on Earth Sciences and Resources; Division on Earth and Life Studies
NAS Press | 2010 | ISBN: 0309158117 9780309158114 | 158 pages | PDF | 125 MB

The authors was asked to describe and assess the range of benefits to the nation that are dependent on high-precision geodetic networks, review high-priority scientific objectives that are dependent on geodetic networks, describe the infrastructure requirements for achieving these objectives and benefits, assess the opportunities for technological innovation that will arise from renewed investment in geodetic infrastructure, and recommend a national plan for the implementation of a precision geodetic infrastructure.

The report finds that some of the critical ground station networks of the space-based geodetic observing systems have become increasingly fragile and recommends that the United States invest in upgrading and maintaining them.
The report recommends that a federal geodetic service be organized to coordinate and facilitate the modernization and long-term operation of the U.S. components.
