Results of the “Center for Orbit Determination in Europe” (CODE) during the IGS 1992 Campaign
The Astronomical Institute, University of Berne (AIUB), the Federal Institute of Topography (L+T), the Institut Géographique National (IGN), the Institute of Applied Geodesy (IfAG), and the Statens Kartverk (SK) are part of the CODE (Center for Orbit Determination in Europe) project within the IGS activities. During the 1992 IGS Campaign CODE operated as a processing center. The main emphasis thereby was the determination of precise orbits (global and European) using a dense network of about 12 sites in Europe and an additional set of about 10 globally distributed sites. In this paper the results of the three months experiment are presented: Global orbits, earth rotation parameters (ERP), and site coordinates.
