Determination of earth rotation and station coordinates from Lageos data

  • A. T. Sinclair (a1), G. M. Appleby (a1) and J. Y. Xia (a1)

Abstract

A package of computer programs for the analysis of satellite laser ranging data has been written at the Royal Greenwich Observatory. The methods used are described, and the Earth rotation parameters and station coordinates derived from the MERIT Lageos data are given, with comparisons with other determinations. The uncertainty of the absolute value of the z-coordinate of the stations is discussed, and a method of short-arc analysis for determining baselines is described.
