Abstract

This special issue publishes papers on recent results in geophysical and climate change studies over Tibet, Xinjiang and Siberia (TibXS) based upon some of the key sensors used in satellite geodesy, including satellite gravimetric sensors (GRACE and GOCE), satellite altimeters (TOPEX, Jason-1 and -2, and ENVISAT), and Global Positioning System satellites. Results from ground- and airborne-based geodetic observations, notably those based on airborne gravimeter, superconducting gravimeter (SG) and seismometers are also included in the special issue. In all, 22 papers were submitted for this special issue; 17 papers were accepted.
