Abstract:

The paper gives the formulae for the change of the orbital elements after one revolution of a satellite around the earth, provided the scale-height, and the latitude and diurnal coefficients depend on the geocentric distance. The errors that arise in the air density and in the diurnal parameters are estimated when these parameters and the scale-height are assumed to be constant. Author
