The International Height Reference System (IHRS), adopted by International Association of Geodesy (IAG) in its Resolution No. 1 at the XXVI General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Prague in 2015, contains two novelties. Firstly, the mean-tide concept is adopted for handling the permanent tide. While many national height systems continue to apply the mean-tide concept, this was the first time that the IAG officially introduced it for a potential field… Expand

Status of the International Gravity Reference System and Frame
To make the gravity reference system accessible to any user and to replace the previous IGSN71 network, an infrastructure based on absolute gravity observations needs to be built up and requires the support of national agencies. Expand


Vertical datum unification for the International Height Reference System (IHRS)
The International Association of Geodesy released in July 2015 a resolution for the definition and realisation of an International Height Reference System (IHRS). According to this resolution, theExpand
Definition and Proposed Realization of the International Height Reference System (IHRS)
The theoretical foundations supporting the implementation of such a physical reference surface in terms of an International Height Reference System are addressed and guidance for the coming activities required for the practical and sustainable realization of this system are provided. Expand
Impacts of geodynamic phenomena on systems for height and gravity
Geodynamic phenomena of permanent or secular characters play a significant role when defining height systems and gravity systems. A treatment is here given of the permanent earth tide, postglacialExpand
The permanent tide in GPS positioning
The treatment of the permanent tidal deformation of the Earth in GPS computation has been an almost unmentioned topic in the GPS literature. However, the ever increasing accuracy and the need toExpand
Applications of the KSM03 Harmonic Development of the Tidal Potential
The KSM03 harmonic development of the Earth tide-generating potential [TGP] (Kudryavtsev 2004) includes 26,753 terms of amplitudes down to the level of 1 × 10−8 m2/s2 and is made in a reference frameExpand
The HW95 tidal potential catalogue
The catalogue named HW95 of the harmonic development of the Earth tide generating potential due to the Moon, the Sun and the planets Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Saturn is presented here. ThisExpand
RATGP95: a harmonic development of the tide-generating potential using an analytical method.
SUMMARY A harmonic development of the tide-generating potential (TGP), named RATGP95, has been computed using an analytical method. The lunar part of the potential has been developed to degree fiveExpand
The Permanent Tide In Height Systems
We describe the treatment of the permanent tide in various geodetic quantities with an emphasis on systems of gravity-related heights. We review the historical development leading to the presentExpand
GGOS Bureau of Products and Standards: Inventory of standards and conventions
The Bureau of Products and Standards (BPS), the former Bureau for Standards and Conventions supports IAG’s Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) in its goals to integrate the three pillars ofExpand
A Modified GRS-80 Normal Field Including Permanent Tide and Atmosphere
Model formulas for the Earth’s normal gravity potential traditionally consist of two parts, (1) the gravitational attraction potential and (2) the centrifugal “potential” of the Earth’s rotation.Expand
