Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to gain a good orientation in the subject from its application point of view. Movement of artificial satellites in Earth's gravity field, influence of non-gravitational forces. Resonance in the orbits of Earth's artificial satellites. Methods of observation of space geodesy. Surveying satellites and satellite missions. Satellite laser location. Moon Laser Location. Interferometry with very long bases. Global Positioning Systems. Solution of inverse problems of space geodesy - determination of Earth's gravitaty field parameters by combined methods, determination of geoid, determination of time variations of Earth's gravitational field. Earth rotation theory and methods for determining the Earth's orientation parameters.
