Call for Papers: High-rate BDS/GNSS and its Seismic Applications

Satellite Navigation welcomes submissions to the thematic series on ' High-rate BDS/GNSS and its Seismic Applications '.

Earthquakes have always been a major natural disaster that endangers the safety of society and causes huge economic losses. The development of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and the improvement of data processing methods and accuracy have provided new high-precision measurement means for earthquake monitoring, which is not only limited to provide long-period crustal deformation changes of daily solution, but also can capture highly dynamic seismic wave, and thus better contribute to earthquake monitoring, early warning and rupture inversion. This special issue invites you to participate in the "High-rate BDS/GNSS and its Seismic Applications" series, which includes but is not limited to the following:

  1. High precision GNSS data processing method and its application prospect in deformation monitoring
  2. High-rate GNSS/ seismometer data integration methodology
  3. Real-time GNSS data processing and its application for earthquake monitoring and early warning
  4. Rapid inversion of focal mechanism based on high-rate GNSS for large earthquakes
  5. Inversion of seismic rupture process by combined waveform observation data (including high-rate GNSS, accelerometer, etc.) 
  6. High-rate GNSS for coseismic and early postseismic slip distribution inversion
  7. High-rate GNSS for Tsunami Hazard Assessment 

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Satellite Navigation. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Satellite Navigation submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the "Additional Information" tab during submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on ' BDS/GNSS high-precision products: strategies, services, and applications '. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.
