Very Long Baseline Interferometer

by
Fujinobu Takahashi, Tetsuro Kondo, Yukio Takahashi, and Yasuhiro Koyama

The authors are members of the research staff at the Communications Research Laboratory. This book explains VLBI technology comprehensively and is aimed at university students and graduate students of science and engineering. It should be useful for people who want to study space geodetic technology, not only VLBI but also GPS and SLR. Although the book was first published in Japanese in 1997, the description to the Key Stone Project (KSP) which CRL has promoted is more enriched in publication with the English version. The KSP is the project dedicated to measuring crustal deformation around the Tokyo metropolitan area using space geodetic techniques, such as VLBI, and the KSP implemented the world's first practical unmanned regular observations by the real-time VLBI technique. The contents are as follows:

Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Basic Concepts: A Quick Tour of VLBI
Chapter 3: Data Processing Techniques
Chapter 4: Data Analysis
Chapter 5: Geodetic VLBI Experiments
Chapter 6: Applications of VLBI Techniques
Chapter 7: In Conclusion

The book will be published in June, 2000 by Ohmsha. More information will be available at http://www2.nict.go.jp/aeri/sts/stmg/old_raag/book_ad_e.html.
