Continuous global positioning satellite tracking networks are being established by a variety of national and international organizations to provide basic infrastructure for space-age navigation, surveying, science, engineering, and atmospheric sensing. The emerging networks present opportunities for a variety of geoscience applications. To make the most of these opportunities, the geoscience community should clarify and communicate its research goals to organizations establishing global positioning networks.
