ScopeGNSS-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) dares to use indirect GNSS signals reflected by an object, which cause multi-path errors in the positioning system, and extracts status information of the reflecting surface itself. It requires low-power and light-weight GNSS receivers alone, so that any platform can be adopted, including microsatellites or UAVs. This session will present various observations using GNSS-R, such as sea surface wind speeds, waves, sea surface height, soil moisture and ice detection. In addition, possible scientific impacts are discussed with unprecedentedly frequent global observations by multiple satellites, such as NASA's eight-microsatellite CYGNSS GNSS-R mission.
