Dr. Bihter Erol earned a Ph.D. in geodesy from Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in 2007, and she is still a full-time associate professor at the ITU Geomatics Department. Her research interests in physical geodesy include the static and temporal determination of the Earth's gravity field, regional geoid modeling using terrestrial and airborne gravimetry, height systems, and structural deformation analyses. Dr. Bihter Erol has research experience in her field at various departments and institutes in Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands. She has numerous scientific journal articles, book chapters, and proceedings to her credit, as well as contributions as an editor and reviewer in geodetic journals, books, and proceedings. She participates in a number of international symposia organizations and scientific committees. She is a member of the ITU Gravity Research Group, supervises thesis studies in the ITU Graduate School's Geomatics and Geographical Information Technologies programs, and conducts research projects in her research fields.

Advances in space-borne technologies lead to improvements in observations and have a notable impact on geodesy and its applications. As a consequence of these improvements in data accuracies, spatial and temporal resolutions, as well as the developments in the methodologies, more detailed analyses of the Earth and a deeper understanding of its state and dynamic processes are possible today. From this perspective, this book is a collection of the selected reviews and case-study articles that report the advances in methodology and applications in geodesy. The chapters in the book are mainly dedicated to the Earth’s gravity field theory and applications, sea level monitoring and analysis, navigation satellite systems data and applications, and monitoring networks for tectonic deformations. This collection is a current state analysis of the geodetic research in theory and applications in today’s modern world.
