Applications of a dedicated gravitational satellite mission


  • Anonymous


In 1978, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) asked the National Research Council, through the Committee on Geodesy, to conduct a workshop on the applications of a dedicated gravitational satellite mission. Such a mission had been recommended in the report, Geodesy: Trends and Prospects, subject to the analysis of accuracy requirements and feasibilities. The workshop was organized through the Panel on Gravity Field and Sea Level, chaired by John C. Harrison. His co-chairman was Richard H. Rapp.
