Professor Paul Tregoning is an expert in satellite orbits and remote sensing at the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences.

Professor Tregoning is an expert in the analysis of satellite observations to study changes on Earth. Specifically, his group monitors sea level rise, crustal deformation caused by earthquakes, changes in continental water resources – including groundwater – and mass balance change of the Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets and their contributions to global sea level rise. Satellite missions used include the Global Positioning System, satellite altimetry and the space gravity missions (GRACE, GRACE Follow-On).

He is a Science Team member of NASA’s GRACE Follow-On mission and participated in the development of the Australian Space Agency’s Earth Observations from Space Roadmap 2021-2030.
