Evaluation of time variations the Earth’s astronomical and geodetic parameters

Lviv Polytechnic National University

The paper is devoted to the modelling of the Earth’s fundamental parameters using recent geodetic  and astronomical data in time. The analysis of modern determinations of fundamental parameters of geodesy, astronomy, and geodynamics have led to the development of new closed expressions and the corresponding approach of their adjustment. The secular variations of basic astrogeodetic parameters were estimated.
