Planetary Dynamics: Shape, Gravity, Orbit, Tides, and Rotation from Observations and Models
Co-organized by OPS/SB
Fri, 25 Sep, 17:40–18:00 (CEST)
Shape, gravity field, orbit, tidal deformation, and rotation state are fundamental geodetic parameters of any planetary object. Measurements of these parameters are prerequisites for e.g. spacecraft navigation and mapping from orbit, but also for modelling of the interior and evolution. This session welcomes contributions from all aspects of planetary geodesy, including the relevant theories, observations and models in application to planets, satellites, ring systems, asteroids, and comets.
