Grupo de Investigación GEODESIA

Grupo de Investigación de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (ref. nº 910505) validado desde 2005.


El Grupo de Investigación Geodesia está compuesto por investigadores de diferentes Instituciones, especialistas en distintos campos de las Ciencias de la Tierra, como la Geodesia, Geodinámica, Geofísica y Gravimetría

En el año 2005, mediante la convocatoria realizada por la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, se crea el Grupo de Investigación, a partir de la base de investigadores que veníamos participando de forma regular en los proyectos de investigación.
