Investigation on stability of mountainous EUPOS sites’ coordinates
The paper concerns analysis of solutions obtained during common processing of data from GNSS permanent stations situated on mountainous terrain: the Western Carpathians, the Sudetes Mountains and adjacent areas. As the outcome daily and weekly solutions (ellipsoidal coordinates) of forty Polish, Czech, Slovak, Ukrainian and German sites were obtained. Weekly solutions were used to determine velocity field and vertical movements, daily solutions enabled quality and precision of sites’ coordinates estimation to check if permanent GNSS sites can be used as a stable reference frame for geodetic, geological and geodynamical measurements in the mountainous area. First investigations concerning data from permanent GNSS stations in the Sudetes Mountains were made in 2007 using daily solutions from EPN sites obtained in test reprocessing of the whole regional network performed in Centre of Applied Geomatics. Since that time, national systems became operational increasing density of GNSS network, so the data can be used for wider range of investigations. As the majority of examined stations started to gather data in 2008, analysis were based on relatively short observation period, so they rather play a role of tests for further investigations and they give the preliminary estimation of individual sites’ activity.
