Abstract

The work of Commission 19 in the period 1993.5–1996.5 was concentrated both on observational and theoretical aspects of Earth rotation, namely on the mutual interaction of the rotating non-rigid Earth with other Solar System bodies as well as with the atmosphere and fluids (oceans, underground water). The activities were closely tied with the work of the following bodies, supported or co-supported by the Commission:
  • – the International Earth Rotation Service (director of the Central Bureau: M. Feissel),

  • – the Commission 19 Working Group on Earth Rotation in the Hipparcos reference frame (chairperson: J. Vondrák),

  • – the intercommission Working Group on Astronomical Standards (chairperson: T. Fukushima),

  • – the intercommission Working Group on Reference Frames (chairperson: L. Morrison),

  • – the IAU/IUGG Working Group on the non-rigid Earth nutation theory (chairperson: V. Dehant), individual observatories and members of the Commission. The description of all these activities follows.
