      Takiguchi, H; Gulyaev, S; Natusch, T; Weston, S; Woodburn, L (The Geoscience Society of New Zealand, 2011)
      The Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research (IRASR) of Auckland University of Technology (AUT) launched the New Zealand's first and only research capable radio telescope (WARK12M) near Warkworth which is located ...
    • Conversion of New Zealand's 30m telecommunication antenna into a radio telescope

      Woodburn, L; Natusch, T; Weston, S; Thomasson, P; Godwin, M; Gulyaev, S (Astronomical Society of Australia, 2014)
      We describe our approach to the conversion of a former 100-foot (30-m) telecommunication antenna in New Zealand into a radio telescope. We provide the specifications of the Earth Station and identify the priorities for the ...
    • Towards synergy of VLBI and GNSS geodetic techniques in geologically dynamic New Zealand

      Takiguchi, H; Gulyaev, S; Natusch, T; Weston, S; Woodburn, L (Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS), 2011)
      Though the New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) is based on and closely matches the International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS) through the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF), it is not a dynamic ...
