Lunar rotational dissipation in solid body and molten core
Analyses of Lunar Laser ranges show a displacement in direction of the Moon's pole of rotation which indicates that strong dissipation is acting on the rotation. Two possible sources of dissipationExpand

The Planetary and Lunar Ephemeris DE 421
The planetary and lunar ephemeris DE 421 represents updated estimates of the orbits of the Moon and planets. The lunar orbit is known to submeter accuracy through fitting lunar laser ranging data.Expand

LUNAR LASER RANGING TESTS OF THE EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE WITH THE EARTH AND MOON
A primary objective of the lunar laser ranging (LLR) experiment is to provide precise observations of the lunar orbit that contribute to a wide range of science investigations. In particular, timeExpand

The relationship between wind vector and normalized radar cross section used to derive SEASAT‐A satellite scatterometer winds
The dependence of ocean normalized radar cross section (NRCS or σ0) on the 19.5 m neutral stability wind vector for the SEASAT-A Satellite Scatterometer (SASS) is described. For the SASS wind vectorExpand

Tides on the Moon: Theory and determination of dissipation
Solid body tides on the Moon vary by about ±0.1 m each month. In addition to changes in shape, the Moon's gravity field and orientation in space are affected by tides. The tidal expressions for anExpand

Angular momentum fluctuations within the Earth's liquid core and torsional oscillations of the core–mantle system
Summary Non-steady differential rotation is one of the main characteristics of the buoyancy-driven flow within the Earth's liquid metallic outer core that generates the main geomagnetic field byExpand
