Gunnar Elgered

Professor, Department of Space, Earth and Environment, Onsala Space Observatory, Space Geodesy and Geodynamics

Gunnar Elgered is a professor in Electrical Measurements, and was the head of department between 2000 and May 2017. He teaches engineering measurements using alternative examination methods. His research area is space geodesy, using radio telescopes and global navigational satellite systems (GNSS). Microwave radiometers are used to study atmospheric effects due to water vapor. The knowledge of water vapor variations is also important when trying to improve weather forecasts. More recently the focus is on the use of GNSS data for climate research and evaluation of climate models.
