BIGF enables science across all NERC science areas and across all disciplines - atmosphere, earth, earth observation, marine, polar, science-based archaeology, and terrestrial and freshwater.

BIGF supplies continuous data sets, directly or indirectly, to many regional and global scale projects and organisations:

  • E-GVAP (EUMETNET EIG GNSS water vapour programme) for atmospheric water vapour research.
  • EPN (European Permanent Network) for wide ranging applications in regional earth science.
  • EPOS (European Plate Observing System) a research infrastructure for solid earth science.
  • IGS (International GNSS Service) for wide ranging applications in global earth science.
  • Met Office for near-real-time integrated water vapour estimation as input to weather forecasting, and in space weather forecasting.
  • NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan) for the construction of 2D maps of total electron content over Europe.
  • SONEL (Système d'Observation du Niveau des Eaux Littorales) for global absolute sea level trends.

and here, and under the thumbnails above, are recent examples of BIGF-supported research projects [see our Annual Report for a full listing]:

and resultant refereed papers and PhD theses utilising BIGF products, where LTT = Long Term Trend and NRT = Near Real Time:

and finally a selection of resultant refereed papers using BIGF RINEX data [full listing]:
