Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 15. This monograph contains 34 communications presented at the Third International Symposium on the Use of Artificial Satellites for Geodesy in 1971, and 4 invited papers on subjects that complement the others and provide continuity. All contributions represent the most recent findings in the theoretical and applied fields of satellite geodesy, including new instrumentation (satellite sensors and ground equipment) of potential use in satellite geodesy. The two preceding symposiums were held at Washington, D.C., in 1962 and at Athens, Greece, in 1965. The Proceedings of the first were published by North-Holland Publishing Company, Amsterdam, in 1963, and the Proceedings of the second by the National Technical University, Athens, in 1967. The prime mover behind both was George Veis, and his continuing dedication to this subject was in large measure responsible for scheduling this third symposium.

This book is dedicated to Dr. Benjamin William Remondi for many reasons. The project of writing a Global Positioning System (GPS) book was con ceived in April 1988 at a GPS meeting in Darmstadt. Dr. Remondi discussed with me the need for an additional GPS textbook and suggested a possible joint effort. In 1989, I was willing to commit myself to such a project. Un fortunately, the timing was less than ideal for Dr. Remondi. Therefore, I decided to start the project with other coauthors. Dr. Remondi agreed and indicated his willingness to be a reviewer. I selected Dr. Herbert Lichtenegger, my colleague from the University of Technology at Graz, Austria, and Dr. James Collins from the United States. In my opinion, the knowledge of the three authors should cover the wide spectrum of GPS. Dr. Lichtenegger is a geodesist with broad experience in both theory and practice. He has specialized his research to geodetic astron omy including orbital theory and geodynamical phenomena. Since 1986, Dr. Lichtenegger's main interest is dedicated to GPS. Dr. Collins retired from the U.S. National Geodetic Survey in 1980, where he was the Deputy Director. For the past ten years, he has been deeply involved in using GPS technology with an emphasis on surveying. Dr. Collins was the founder and president of Geo/Hydro Inc. My own background is theoretically oriented. My first chief, Prof. Dr. Peter Meissl, was an excellent theoretician; and my former chief, Prof. DDDr. Helmut Moritz, fortunately, still is.

Completely revised and updated edition. The book covers the entire field of satellite geodesy (status spring/\break summer 2002). Basic chapters on reference systems, time, signal propagation, and satellite orbits are updated. All currently important observation methods are included and also all newly launched satellites of interest to geodesy. Particular emphasis is given to the current status of the Global Positioning System (GPS), which covers now about one third of the book. A new chapter on Differential GPS and active GPS reference networks is included. The GPS modernization plans, GLONASS, the forthcoming European system GALILEO, modern developments in GPS data analysis, error modelling, precise real time methods and ambiguity resolution are dealt with in detail. New satellite laser ranging missions, new altimetry missions (e.g. TOPEX/Poseidon, ERS-1/2, GFO, JASON), and new and forthcoming gravity field missions (CHAMP, GRACE, GOCE) are also considered. The book serves as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a reference for professionals and scientists in the field of engineering and geosciences such as geodesy, surveying, geo-information, navigation, geophysics and oceanography.

In 1954, Antonio Marussi started a series of symposia in Venice. The first three of these covered the entire theoretical definition of 3-D geodesy as delineated in discussions with renowned contemporary scientists, particularly Martin Hotine. After Marussi's death, the symposia were finally named the Hotine-Marussi Symposia and were continued in Italy. The Third Hotine-Marussi Symposium was held in L'Aquila from May 30 to June 3, 1994. It provided geodesists interested in theory and methodology with the opportunity to discuss their theoretical achievements, as well as new topics in the geodetic sciences. This book thus provides an updated overview of the main geodetic theories in various fields of application.

Celestial mechanics aims to predict the motion of every real object in outer space, no matter what causes changes in its orbit. The motion of most planets and natural satellites can be successfully described by conservative celestial mechanics and problems can be studied within the formalism of Hamiltonian mechanics. The few exceptions which experience significant non-gravitational effects call for only very small corrections to the purely gravitational theory. All satellites experience non-gravitational perturbations to their orbits. However, factors such as the relatively high area-to-mass ratio of spacecraft compared with that of even a tiny asteroid significantly increase the relative effect of non-gravitational to gravitational forces on the orbits of artificial satellites. When the orbital tracking is carried out by very accurate techniques, the need arises to model, or at least to estimate, the effects of phenomena such as radiation pressure from solar light and from Earthshine or drag caused by neutral and charged particles. This book presents the basic ideas of the physics of the main non-gravitational perturbations and the mathematics of the methods required to compute their orbital effects. The authors convey to the reader the relevance of the different problems that need to be solved to achieve a given level of accuracy in the orbit determination and in the recovery of geophysically significant parameters. The book will enable readers to assess for themselves the possible geodetic uses of given space missions, or maybe to propose a new one, or to propose a combined geodetic use for a mission envisaged for other purposes. The Authors Andrea Milani is a mathematician, Anna Maria Nobili ad Paolo Farinella are physicists. They began working together in celestial mechanics and satellite geodesy in 1978, when they formed, with others, the Space Mechanics Group now based at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa, Italy. By travelling to many research centres in Europe and in the USA, and by presenting several proposals for space-based experiments to the European Space Agency and to the Italian Space Program, they have learned how to assess the difficulty of an orbit determination and how often the problem is due to poor modelling of very-subtle non-gravitational effects, In this book they try to make their know-how available to others, as well as teaching some basic tools of celestial mechanics on the basis of their experience in basic research. A Milani and A M Nobili also work on the stability of the solar system, P Farinella also studies the dynamics and physics of the asteriod belt.
