In this paper we use, in a very preliminary way, the recently released EIGEN2 Earth gravity model, which is based on six months of data of CHAMP only, in order to reassess the systematic error due to the mismodelling in the even zonal harmonics of geopotential which represents one of the major sources of systematic errors in the LAGEOS–LAGEOS II Lense–Thirring experiment involving the nodes of both the LAGEOS satellites and the perigee of LAGEOS II. Concerning the EIGEN2 solution, it should be… CONTINUE READING
