Corrections to the misprints of the paper :

Mean radius, mass, and inertia for reference Earth models

Frédéric Chambat and Bernard Valette

Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors, Vol. 124 (3-4) (2001) pp. 237-253


Table 6, p. 251: at lines #18,19,20,26,27 the point in the values of the third column is missing or is not at the right place; these lines should be (changes in bold):

Mean solid topography            h|0   2.33 (7)         102m
Mean geoidal radius              R     6.370 994 4 (30) 106m
Physical radius                  b     6.371 230  (10)  106m
Second radial density moment     rho2  5.514 (8)        103kg m-3
Fourth radial density moment     rho4  4.558 (7)        103kg m-3

Table 4, p. 244: the last figures of J2 should be aligned to their right as follows :

OSU91   6 378 137     1986    1.082 627 04       1.082 626 81
JGM2    6 378 136.3   1986            6 93               6 33
GRIM4   6 378 136     1984            7 19 (22)          6 43
EGM96   6 378 136.3   1986            6 68 (8)           6 08    

Equations (115) and (120) , pp. 247,248: the mathematical sign "equivalent when r tends towards 0" is wrongly printed. It should be :

\begin{displaymath}
\left( \begin{array}{c}
h_{\varphi} \\ r \partial _r h_{\va...
... }
\left( \begin{array}{c} 1 \\ l-1 \end{array}\right) r^{l-1}
\end{displaymath} (115)
\begin{displaymath}
\left( \begin{array}{c} x_{1} \\ x_{2} \end{array}\right)
{\...
...}
\left( \begin{array}{c} 1 \\ l-1 \end{array}\right) r^{l-1}.
\end{displaymath} (120)

Line between equations (82) and (83) , p. 246: the time t has been forgotten : the integrand of F should be f(x,t) .

Equation (110) , p. 247: the sign - in front of "4 pi" should be + .

Line before equation (A.7) , p. 252: the word "increasing" should be decrecreasing .
