    Notes: The secular change in the mean motion of the Moon, nud, caused by the tidal dissipation in the ocean and solid Earth is due primarily to the effect of the diurnal and semidiurnal tides. The long-period ocean tides produce an increase in nR, but the effects are only 1 per cent of the diurnal and semidiurnal ocean tides. In this investigation, expressions for these effects are obtained by developing the tidal potential in the ecliptic reference system. The computation of the amplitude of equilibrium tide and the phase corrections is also discussed. The averaged tidal deceleration of the Moon's mean motion, nud, from the most recent satellite ocean tide solutions is -25.25 ± 0.4 arcseconds/century2. The value for nud inferred from the satellite-determined ocean tide solution is in good agreement with the value obtained from the analysis of 20 years of lunar laser ranging observations.

    Notes: Summary A model for the anisotropic reflection force acting on Ajisai is presented which includes the variable reflectivity coefficient and the force in the direction perpendicular to the incident light. This model significantly reduces the along-track orbit errors of Ajisai and smoothes the spike-like variation in the estimated drag coefficients from analysis of Ajisai laser ranging data. The model produces 17% smaller range residual RMS values in a one-year arc analysis of 1993 data, and a smaller residual RMS for a short-arc analysis in mid-year, the period from May to August, 1993.

    Notes: Abstract. Methods for analyzing laser-ranging residuals to estimate station-dependent systematic errors and to eliminate outliers in satellite laser ranges are discussed. A robust estimator based on an M-estimation principle is introduced. A practical calculation procedure which provides a robust criterion with high breakdown point and produces robust initial residuals for following iterative robust estimation is presented. Comparison of the results from the least-squares method with those of the robust method shows that the results of the station systematic errors from the robust estimator are more reliable.

    Notes: Abstract Some aspects for efficient computation of the tidal perturbation due to the ellipticity effects of the Earth, the luni-solar potential on an Earth-orbiting satellite and the perturbations of the satellite's radial, transverse and normal position components due to the effects of the Earth's gravitational and ocean tide fields are presented. A straightforward method for computing the spectrum of the geopotential and the tidal-induced perturbations of the orbit elements and the radial, transverse and normal components is described.

    Description: Satellite laser ranging data to Starlette, collected during the period from 1975 to 1990, are analyzed to determine yearly values of the second degree annual (Sa) and semiannual (Ssa) tides, simultaneously with average values of other low degree and order tide parameters. The yearly fluctuations in the values for Sa and Ssa are associated with changes in the Earth's second degree zonal harmonic caused by meteorological excitation. The Starlette-determined mean values for the amplitude of the annual and semiannual variations in J2 are 32.3 x 10 exp -11 and 19.5 x 10 exp -11, respectively; while the rms about the mean values are 4.1 x 10 exp -11 and 6.3 x 10 exp -11, respectively. The annual delta-J2 is in good agreement with the value obtained from the combined effects of air mass redistribution without the oceanic inverted-barometer effects (non-IB) and hydrological change. Approximately 90 percent of the observed annual variation from Starlette is attributed to the meteorological mass redistribution occurring on the Earth's surface.

    Description: The secular change in the mean motion of the moon, n, caused by the tidal dissipation in the ocean and solid earth is due primarily to the effect of the diurnal and semidiurnal tides. The long-period ocean tides produce an increase in n, but the effects are only 1 percent of the diurnal and semidiurnal ocean tides. In this investigation, expressions for these effects are obtained by developing the tidal potential in the ecliptic reference system. The computation of the amplitude of equilibrium tide and the phase corrections is also discussed. The averaged tidal deceleration of the moon's mean motion, n, from the most recent satellite ocean tide solutions is -25.25 +/- 0.4 arcseconds/sq century. The value for n inferred from the satellite-determined ocean-tide solution is in good agreement with the value obtained from the analysis of 20 years of lunar laser-ranging observations.

    Description: The long-period perturbations present in the orbit of the Starlette geodetic satellite is analyzed using a one-year continuous orbit from October 1976 through October 1977 and a three-year orbit during 1983 through 1985. A solution for 66 ocean tidal parameters for 14 low-degree tidal constituents is obtained in a simultaneous least squares estimation procedure with other geodynamic and orbit parameters. The yearly values of the second-degree S(a) tides, which have been observed to produce significant seasonal variations on the Starlette node, are included in the solution. Good agreement is found between the solutions, other satellite solutions, the oceanographic tide solutions, and other investigations using the computation of the earth's tidal response. The results indicate that the Starlette tide solutions produces significantly improved orbit fits for both Lageos and Starlette.

    Description: Earth rotation parameter (ERP) solutions were derived from the Starlette orbit analysis during the Main MERIT Campaign, using a technique of a consider-covariance analysis to assess the effects of errors on the polar motion solutions. The polar motion solution was then improved through the simultaneous adjustment of some dynamical parameters representing identified dominant perturbing sources (such as the geopotential and ocean-tide coefficients) on the polar motion solutions. Finally, an improved ERP solution was derived using the gravity field model, PTCF1, described by Tapley et al. (1986). The accuracy of the Starlette ERP solution was assessed by a comparison with the LAGEOS-derived ERP solutions.

    Description: The dynamical effect of temporal variations in the zonal harmonics of the earth's gravitational potential due to tidal and meteorological mass redistribution has been observed using satellite laser ranging (SLR) measurements to Starlette. The secular variations in the Earth's zonal harmonics and the year-to-year fluctuation of the even degree annual and semi-annual tides, S(a) and S(sa) have been determined from a continuous Starlette orbit spanning from 1983 through 1985. The mean values for S(a) and S(sa) tides are in good agreement with other tide solutions. The year-to-year fluctuations of the even degree S(a), deduced from Starlette node variations, are about 25 percent of the mean value obtained during the three-year Starlette orbit span.
