Special Bureau for the Core, GGFC, IERS

Project Description
[from Special Bureau for the Core home page:
http://www.astro.oma.be/SBC/home.html]

The SBC is one of the eight Special Bureaus (SB's) of the Global
Geophysical Fluids Center (GGFC), established by the International
Earth Rotation Service IERS on January 1, 1998 to facilitate the link
between the space geodetic and the geodynamic communities (see
http://www.astro.oma.be/SBC/intronew.html). Within the GGFC, the SBC
is responsible for collecting, archiving, and distributing data
related to the core and plays a role in promoting and coordinating
research on this topic. The SBC has about twenty members from the
fields of geomagnetism, Earth rotation, geodynamo modelling (numerical
and experimental), and gravimetry. Some background articles of the SBC
can be found at http://www.astro.oma.be/SBC/background.html.
