ScopeGlobal Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), like GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO etc. has become a fundamental tool for studies on atmosphere, ionosphere, and solid earth. In Japan GNSS data came to be used for a weather forecast system and a space weather forecast recently, as well as monitoring crustal movements, using nation-wide array. A Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) was launched in 2010 and various technical examinations using this satellite are going to be conducted. In this session, the results of the latest studies using GNSS are welcome. We will share these studies and discuss future plan and possibilities.
