International Geodynamics and
Earth Tide Service (IGETS)

About this service

Objectives of IGETS

The primary objective of the International Geodynamics and Earth Tide Service (IGETS) is to provide a Service to monitor temporal variations of the Earth gravity field through long-term records from ground gravimeters, tiltmeters, strainmeters and other geodynamic sensors. IGETS continues the activities of the Global Geodynamic Project to provide support to geodetic and geophysical research activities using superconducting gravimeter data within the context of an international network. IGETS also continues the activities of the International Center for Earth Tides, in particular, in collecting, archiving and distributing Earth tide records from long series of gravimeters, tiltmeters, strainmeters and other geodynamic sensors.
