Brief Introduction of Prof. Yibin Yao

Prof. Dr. Yibin YAO research interest is the GNSS space environment monitoring (Troposphere amd Ionosphere). He graduated his bachelor in 1997 in Surgey engineering. Followed by his master in Geodesy, both performed at the Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping. His Ph.D. in Geodesy he achieved in 2004.
