Abstract : The paper gives the results of the determination of the coefficients associated with three odd degree harmonics of the geopotential of order thirteen. The opportunity to refine the values of these coefficients was made possible with the launching of the GEOS-II (1968 02A) satellite. A brief description of the method used is also included in addition to references where more detailed information can be found. (Author)
