The main topics covered were as follows: the specification of nutation in the lAU system of astronomical constants; determination of forced nutation and nearly diurnal free polar motion from astronomical observations; expected use of lunar ranging data and long baseline interferometers for precise measurement of the nutation terms; models of.

lunar mineral types is large, there are almost certainly some minerals on the Moon that are not represented in our currently small and geographically limited sample collection. At the time this book was being prepared, another new mineral was discovered in the Apollo lunar sample collection (yoshiokaite; see Vaniman and Bish, ).

Attention is also given to the expected use of lunar ranging data to determine modified nutation terms, the use of a long-baseline interferometer to measure precisely the constant of nutation, the.

precession-nutation theory (in this paper, MCEP system). We use solutions for the lunar libration and for the lunar orbital motion which preserve the analytic advantages, both re-ferred to the mean ecliptic of J in the inertial sense as defined by Standish (). This allows one to fit simultane-. But also other periods (day, year, day) can be fitted. The nutation coefficients were determined from LLR based on the models for precession and nutation according to the IAU Resolution and compared to the MHB model of Mathews et al. (). In this paper, the corresponding preliminary results are discussed. On the contrary, it is entangled with the lunar parallax, the constants of precession and nutation, the parallactic inequality of the moon, the lunar inequality of the earth, the masses of the.   Nutation and the Earth's Rotation by E.
