  • Objectives:Establishing a unified global height datum is one of the core objectives of the international geodetic scientific community, and also a necessary infrastructure for geoscience research on a global scale and cross-border engineering applications. The International Association of Geodesy (IAG) released the definition of International Height Reference system (IHRS) in 2015 and then in 2019 set out the goal of establishing the International Height Reference Frame (IHRF). Methods:In this paper, the theory, methods and practical problems related to the IHRS and IHRF are reviewed and studied on the basis of the theoretical foundation and definition of the global height reference system. Four main aspects are considered:1) determination of gravity potential W0 of the global geoid; 2) determination of gravity potential based on high degree gravity field model; 3) determination of gravity potential based regional gravity field modeling; 4) investigation of two typical case studies:IAG Colorado geoid model experiment and realization of the IHRS in 2020 Qomolangma Height Survey. Results:The results of two typical case studies demonstrate that:the accuracy of gravimetric geoid model can reach 1 cm (0.1 m2s-2 in gravity potential) in flat areas and general mountainous areas, and it is expected to reach 2~3 cm accuracy (0.2~0.3 m2s-2 in gravity potential) even in very complex mountainous areas such as Mount Qomolangma. Conclusions:Based on the results of two case studies, observation technology, data resources, spatial distribution and other factors, a preliminary strategy for establishing the IHRF is proposed, including layout plan of IHRF reference stations, determination methods of IHRF related gravity potential, data requirements, standards/conventions to be followed and expected accuracy. In addition, we prospect the potential contributions of optical atomic clocks and relativistic geodesy to the unification of global height datum.
