Improving VLBI-based CRF for Geodesy

Chair: Sebastien Lambert (France)

 

Objectives

The WG will address the way of improving the VLBI CRF and how these improvements can impact other geodetic products. The following items will be looked into:

  • ICRS/ICRF definition in view of the latest developments in astrometry and space geodesy;
  • Systematic errors in the current individual CRF realizations;
  • Effects of changing the wavelengths due to, e.g., core-shift;
  • Modeling and analysis options;
  • Interaction with futures Gaia-like CRF.
