Two presentations that relate to the general activities and/or science results of the ILRS are mentioned here. The first one is a publication in Eos (Vol. 84, No. 6, February 11, 2003, p.51), entitled “Laser ranging workshop draws international research community”, by Noomen and Klosko. It is a summary of the International Workshop on Laser Ranging that was held in Washington DC in October 2002. The other one is a presentation “ILRS contribution to current and future IERS products” given by Gurtner (co-authors Appleby, Noomen and Shelus) during the IERS Retreat in Paris, on March 31 and April 1 2003.
In addition, Exertier reported on a paper written by Barlier and Lefebvre, entitled “A new look at planet Earth: satellite geodesy and geosciences” (in: “The Century of Space Science”, p. 1623-1651, Kluwer, 2001).
