Abstract

Some aspects for efficient computation of the tidal perturbation due to the ellipticity effects of the Earth, the luni-solar potential on an Earth-orbiting satellite and the perturbations of the satellite's radial, transverse and normal position components due to the effects of the Earth's gravitational and ocean tide fields are presented. A straightforward method for computing the spectrum of the geopotential and the tidal-induced perturbations of the orbit elements and the radial, transverse and normal components is described.
