Abstract : A geodetic solution Serial NWL-5E-6 based on 37 weeks of Doppler satellite observations is discussed. The 58 gravity coefficients through seventh degree and sixth order are given with three pairs of higher order coefficients which were obtained subsequently. It is demonstrated that the results yielded a 25 meter accuracy in the determination of the positions of tracking stations with respect to the center of mass of the earth. (Author)
