Abstract : This report summarizes the research work carried out from December 1, 1978 through September 30, 1981 on an AFGL project directed towards the study of geodetic and geophysical parameters. The final report summarizes the work distributed earlier in twelve scientific and two internal reports. The main areas of research were: reference frames, nutation and polar motion; prediction, estimation and other computational methods in geodesy; general surface representation module designed for geodesy; U.S. gravity reference network; positional errors in inertial navigation and mass point modeling.
