This report continues the practice where the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements revises recommendations regarding those topics for the planets, satellites, minor planets, and comets approximately every 3 years. The Working Group has now become a “functional working group” of the IAU, and its membership is open to anyone interested in participating. We describe the procedure for submitting questions about the recommendations given here or the application of…

The precession and nutations of a rigid Mars
The nutations of Mars are about to be estimated to a few milliarcseconds accuracy with the radioscience experiments onboard InSight and ExoMars 2022. The contribution to the nutations due to the
The reference frames of Mercury after the MESSENGER mission
TLDR
The performed measurements of Mercury rotation based on terrestrial radar observations as well as data from the Mariner 10 and the MESSENGER missions are summarized.
Relativistic Effects in the Rotation of Jupiter’s Inner Satellites
Abstract The most significant relativistic effects (the geodetic precession and the geodetic nutation, which consist of the effect of the geodetic rotation) in the rotation of Jupiter’s inner
Rotational Dynamics of the Inner Satellites of Jupiter
Abstract— The article considers the attitude stability of synchronous rotation and the most significant relativistic effects in the rotational dynamics of the inner satellites of Jupiter: Metis
The gravity field and interior structure of Dione
Abstract During its mission in the Saturn system, Cassini performed five close flybys of Dione. During three of them, radio tracking data were collected during the closest approach, allowing
New High-Precision Values of the Geodetic Rotation of the Mars Satellites System, Major Planets, Pluto, the Moon and the Sun
Abstract In this study the relativistic effects (the geodetic precession and the geodetic nutation, which consist of the effect of the geodetic rotation) in the rotation of Mars satellites system for
A New Enceladus Global Control Network, Image Mosaic, and Updated Pointing Kernels From Cassini's 13-Year Mission
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft spent 13 years exploring the Saturn system, including 23 targeted flybys of the small, geologically active moon Enceladus. These flybys provided a wealth of image data
Correction to: Report of the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements: 2015
TLDR
Some errors are pointed out in the most recent report from the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements (Archinal et al. 2018).
Location and Setting of the Mars InSight Lander, Instruments, and Landing Site
TLDR
The InSight lander is located at 4.502384°N, 135.623447°E at an elevation of −2.426 m with respect to the geoid in Elysium Planitia and instrument locations (and the magnetometer orientation) are derived by transforming from Instrument Deployment Arm, spacecraft mechanical, and site frames into the cartographic frame.
