In 2013 the King Edward Point (KEP) Geodetic Observatory was established in South Georgia, South Atlantic Ocean, in support of geoscience applications. South Georgia Island has been a key location for the seismic, geomagnetic and oceanic global monitoring networks. However, no geodetic permanent monitoring station had been established there despite the lack of observations from this region within the International GNSS Service (IGS) network of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) stations. Currently, the observatory consists of two state-of-the-art GNSS stations (KEPA 42701M001 and KRSA 42702M001) with local benchmark networks, allowing the height determinations from the GNSS antennas to be transferred to the tide gauge (Global Sea Level Observing System 187) and forming a height reference within the International Terrestrial Reference Frame. In this study, we will present an evaluation of the GNSS observations from the KEP Geodetic Observatory for the period from February 2013 to December 2013. We calculate multipath and positioning statistics and compare these to those from IGS stations. We report on the benchmark network and tide board installation, as well as, on the results from the two levelling campaigns carried out to date. For the future it is envisaged that the stations will contribute to the TIGA objective of monitoring vertical land movements at tide gauges, and that KEPA will contribute to the IGS network.

During February 2013 the King Edward Point (KEP) Geodetic Observatory was established in South Georgia, South Atlantic Ocean, through a University of Luxembourg funded research project and in collaboration with the United Kingdom’s National Oceanography Centre, British Antarctic Survey and Unavco, Inc. Due to its remote location in the South Atlantic Ocean, as well as, being one of few subaerial exposures of the Scotia plate, South Georgia Island has been a key location for a number of global monitoring networks, e.g. seismic, geomagnetic and oceanic. However, no geodetic monitoring station has been established, e.g. by the International Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Service (IGS) community, despite the lack of such observations from this region. In this study we will present an evaluation of the GNSS observations from the KEP Geodetic Observatory for the period from February to August 2013. We calculate multipath and positioning statistics and compare these to those from IGS stations. The on-site meteorological data is compared to those from the nearby KEP meteorological station and global numerical weather models, and the impact of these data sets on delay and integrated water vapour estimates will be evaluated. We will discuss the installation in terms of its potential contributions to sea level observations using tide gauges and satellite altimetry, studies of tectonics, glacio-isostatic adjustment and atmospheric processes.
