1979 Symposium - International astronomical union  
It is already well known that the coordinates of the pole can be derived not only by the classical astronomical methods but also from analysis of the orbits of artificial Earth satellites. The MEDOC experiment (Motion of the Earth by Doppler Observation Campaign) has been initiated by the Groupe de Recherches de Géodésie Spatiale (GRGS) to provide observations and undertake independent analysis for this purpose. Several organisations are participating.
