We are a research group which focuses on ground surface deformation monitoring and its data processing.
(1)Deformation Monitoring System integrated Multi-Sensor (GPS, clinometer, total station electronic tacheometer)
We developed a GNSS deformation monitoring systerm which combined single antenna GPS system and multi-antenna systerm. The developed monitoring systerm greatly reduces hardware costs of GNSS deformation monitoring systerm. This systerm has advantages of all weather operations, high degree of automation, high-precision and dispensing with intervisible measuring stations, so it is suitable for landslide, dam, industrial factory building, etc slowly continuous automatic deformation monitoring.

(2)GNSS deformation monitoring theory and method
We developed some model, e.g. GNSS observations stochastic model, regional precision tropospheric delay correction model, multipath error feature and delay correction model, to improve GNSS monitoring precision. We also use some deformation analysis methods, e.g. Kalman filter, EMD, wavelet, ICA, to extract some useful imformation in GNSS deformation series。

(3)Spatio-temporal deformation data analysis theory and method
We focus on take spatial correlation and temporal correlation into consideration. And we bring spatio-temporal Kalman filter, spatio-temporal ICA into deformation data analysis.
