Coordinate reference systems
"Coordinate reference systems" project includes tasks in guidance and maintenance of EUREF-FIN, the Finnish realisation of the ETRS89 reference system.
The Finnish permanent GPS network FinnRef® is a part of the Fennoscandian Regional Permanent GPS Network.
Geodetic SAR for Baltic Height System Unification and Baltic Sea Level Research (SAR HSU)
In addition to the tide gauges, sea level research nowadays is based on a number of measurement systems, which all have their own characteristics and deliver different type of observations. In order to analyze all observations they need to be available in a common reference frame.
The project concentrates of usability and accuracy of various geodetic GNSS measurement modes.
In Finland, there are free nationwide reference systems, EUREF-FIN coordinate system, N2000 height system and FOGN gravity system. On top of these there is a national geoid model FIN2005N00 that is a transformation surface between EUREF-FIN and N2000 heights. In this project, we research some aspects that support decision making when future reference systems are to be created.
The Finnish Geodetic Institute studies crustal deformations at the candidate sites for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel.
