Geocenter motion and changes in the Earth’s dynamic oblateness (J2) are of great importance in many applications. Among others, they are critical indicators of largescale mass redistributions, which is invaluable to understand ongoing global climate change. The revolutionary Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite mission...

The modelling of non-gravitational forces acting on a satellite (especially a GNSS satellite) started half a century ago. Their modelling to low Earth orbiters (LEOs), however, are more recent because of the dominating atmospheric drag, the modelling of which requires the precision of recent atmospheric models. However, this is not an issue for...

A new methodology is proposed to estimate changes in the Earth’s dynamic oblateness (?J2 or equivalently, ?5??C20) on a monthly basis. The algorithm uses monthly Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) gravity solutions, an ocean bottom pressure model and a glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) model. The resulting time series agree...

The Cryosat-2 mission is an European Space Agency mission with the main objective to measure and monitor the variation in sea-ice and main ice sheets on Earth, located at Greenland and Antarctic. The satellite's main instrument is a state of the art altimeter, which can measure the distance between the satellite and the ice surface with extreme...
