dc.description.abstract Measurements of Mars' rotational variations can be conducted via Earth-based radio tracking observations of the Mars Pathfinder lander during an extended mission. Two-way range measurements between an Earth antenna and the lander will enable precise monitoring of the planet's orientation and length-of-day variation, allowing details of Mars' internal structure and global surface/atmosphere interactions to be determined with precision for the first time. en_US
