V1-potential terms in papers addressing the HW95 tidal potential

By | 4. November 2019

Bruno Meurers recently pointed out a misprint which was never affecting any version of Eterna.

Nevertheless, it should be noted that in several publications [1], [2], [3] the mass of the tide-generating body should appear instead of the mass of the Earth in the degree-1 terms of the tidal potential equation. In the thesis [4] the degree-1 terms are correct, see HW95 misprint (16 downloads) .
