The Working Group on “Regional Dense Velocity Fields” (see http://epncb.oma.be/IAG) of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) aims at densifying the International Terrestrial Reference Frame and creating a dense velocity field based on regional and global GNSS networks. With the goal to generate a high-quality solution for a core network, several newly reprocessed global and regional cumulative position and velocity solutions were submitted to the Working Group. In order to find a…
