On the impact of the secular rates of the even zonal harmonics on the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect: a quantitative analysis

Abstract

In this paper we discuss the role of the uncertainty in the even zonal harmonic coefficients Jl of the Newtonian component of the terrestrial gravitational potential from the most recent CHAMP and/or GRACE based Earth gravity models on the measurement of the general relativistic gravitomagnetic Lense-Thirring effect with the nodes Ω of the existing laser… (More)
