Earth Orientation Products


Due to potentially ongoing technical difficulties exacerbated by efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, there is a chance that we may be unable to maintain the usual level of manual oversight and validation normally given to our EOP products, especially to the “daily” EOP solution that occurs at about 17:30 UTC each day.

Until further notice, we will attempt to update the message below each day no later than 18:00 UTC to indicate whether the published EOP products have been reviewed by a data analyst.  


01-Aug-2020   EOP C/P  Solution status :    Acceptable


In the event that EOP products cannot be reviewed by a data analyst, the products will still be published to CDDIS and later to the IERS web site, but users may wish to exercise some discretion in relying upon them.  If the information (in bold above) is not updated, it could just mean that we were not able to access the site to update the information; in that case the EOP solutions may or may not be acceptable in that case and the analyst will try to send out an email to the EOP C/P critical users list.

We will continue making every reasonable effort to ensure the accuracy and timely publication of our EOP products throughout the current pandemic.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the EOP C/P Division at: (202 550 6407 or 202 876 6543) or contact the USNO Operations center at: 202 762 0001
