Bob King specializes in the application of high precision GPS geodesy to crustal deformation and atmospheric studies. In particular his work is concerned with continuous monitoring for improved accuracy and detection of short period phenomena. Over the last 30 years King has been centrally involved in developing the GAMIT/GLOBK GPS analysis software, a suite of programs for analyzing GPS measurements primarily to study crustal deformation and providing training to GAMIT’s broad user base.
King received his PhD from MIT in 1975. He joined EAPS in 1977 and has been a Principal Research Scientist in the department since 1985.
