Abstract

During the period the activities of the Commission were expanded by several major events which have had beneficient effects on the determination of the Earth’s rotation parameters (ERP):
  • the People’s Republic of China becoming member of IAU the astronomical observations were available for the international services or special experiments as MERIT. This contribution is more specially noticed in the reports of BIH and IPMS.

  • by the organization of the MERIT campaign the scientific communauty succeeded to set up a first world campaign with a simultaneous operation of all the techniques currently available : classical astronomy, Doppler, Laser and radio-astronomy. The analysis of such a set of data confirms the necessity to refine the relations between the reference systems associated intrinsically with each approach.

  • the increased accuracy obtained in the determination of the ERP and in geodynamics as well require a better definition of a conventional Reference System and its maintenance. To fulfill these objectives a new Working Group has been established by the IAU Colloquium 56.

  • - the 1979 IAU Theory of Nutation has been revised in order to be in agreement with the resolution taken by IUGG in December 1979. A large majority (80%) of Commission 19 was in favour of that modification and adopted the 1980 IAU theory of Nutation.
