The Use of Resonant Orbits in Satellite Geodesy: A Review
Dynamic resonance, arising from commensurate (orbital or rotational) periods of satellites or planets with each other, has been a strong force in the development of the solar system. The repetitionExpand

Determination of the geopotential scale factor from satellite altimetry
SummaryThe geopotential scale factor R0=GM/W0 has been determined on the basis of satellite altimetry as R0=(6 363 672·5±0·3) m and/or the geopotential value on the geoid W0=(62 636 256·5±3) m2s−2.Expand

On fine orbit selection for particular geodetic and oceanographic missions involving passage through resonances
Abstract. The identification of mean semi-major axes (suitably defined) for satellite orbits to satisfy a variety of requirements for geodesy, geophysics and oceanography, in terms of repeat orbitsExpand

Pyramids and ceremonial centers in mesoamerica: Were they oriented using a magnetic compass?
Fuson (1969), see also Carlson (1975), claims that Olmécs and Maya knew and used a (lodestone) compass for the orientation of pyramids, ceremonial and other important buildings, thousand years beforeExpand

Degradation of Geopotential Recovery from Short Repeat-Cycle Orbits: Application to GRACE Monthly Fields
Throughout 2004 the GRACE (Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment) orbit contracted slowly to yield a sparse repeat track of 61 revolutions every 4 days on 19 September 2004. As a result, we showExpand

Geometry and accuracy of reflecting points in bistatic satellite altimetry
The analysis of the time and space distribution of specular (reflecting) points in bistatic altimetry between GPS and CHAMP satellites or SAC-C (taken as examples) is extended from Wagner andExpand

Variations in the accuracy of gravity recovery due to ground track variability: GRACE, CHAMP, and GOCE
Following an earlier recognition of degraded monthly geopotential recovery from GRACE (Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment) due to prolonged passage through a short repeat (low order resonant)Expand
