  • In the last 'years the study of the LAGEOS orbital features (a ball covered with corner reflectors suitable to be ranged by SLR ground stations) has been focused about the modelling of non-gravitational effects acting on the satellite. In fact the LAGEOS tracking data analysis shows that the residuals on the along tra,l, accel5ration have a secular drag of about -3.4~10- m/sec and signatures whose periods turn out from linear combinations of the longitude of the LAGEOS node and of the Sun… CONTINUE READING
