Theory of Satellite Geodesy: Applications of Satellites to Geodesy

Theory of Satellite Geodesy: Applications of Satellites to Geodesy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The main purpose of this classic text is to demonstrate how Newtonian gravitational theory and Euclidean geometry can be used and developed in the earth's environment. The second is to collect and explain some of the mathematical techniques developed for measuring the earth by satellite.

Book chapters include discussions of the earth's gravitational field, with special emphasis on spherical harmonies and the potential of the ellipsoid; matrices and orbital geometry; elliptic motion, linear perturbations, resonance, and other aspects of satellite orbit dynamics; the geometry of satellite observations, including time and precise definition of coordinates, and observability conditions; and statistical implications and date analysis.

The completion of a first-year course in physics and a first-year course in calculus is assumed.

Synopsis:
