Divisions >> Geodesy
 
The problem of geodesy is to determine the figure and external gravity field of the earth and of other celestial bodies as a function of time, from observations on and exterior to the surfaces of these bodies (W. Torge). Beside determining the figure and external gravity field of the earth, the data used for geodynamic purposes are produced by analyzing the variations on the earth crust.
