Time and the Earth's Rotation
Laser tracking of the Lageos spacecraft has been used to derive the position of the Earth's pole of rotation at 5-day intervals during Oc tober, November and December 1976. The estimated precision of the re sults is 0.01 to 0.02 arcseconds in both x and y components, although the formal uncertainty is an order of magnitude better, and there is general agreement with the Bureau International de 1'Heure smoothed pole path to about 0.02 arcseconds.
