Long-period variations in gravity field caused by mantle anelasticity


A numerical perturbation approach is used to assess the effect of mantle anelasticity on the Earth's zonal response coefficient •:, the zonal geopotential coefficient J2, and the orbital node of geodetic satellites. The theoretical predictions are used to compare solutions of elastic ocean tide models and tides observed by geodetic satellites for Mr, M m… (More)
